Steps to Reproduce:
This is after boot up is finished?
You're probably hitting bug 471498.
Does updating to the plymouth here:
and then running
/usr/libexec/plymouth/plymouth-update-initrd (as root)
fix things for you?
Fixed, yes most probably I hit bug 471498, updating to the latest version fixed the problem.
Thanks for the quick answer.
