Default Blank screen when switching from X to Console (280.13/Ubuntu)

On Ubuntu Oneiric, when switching to tty1-6, the screen displays only a narrow purple strip at the top of the screen, the rest being blank/black. It seems I can blind type. Also, Plymouth shows similar symptoms (doesn't show, only purple screen).

I have played with different GFXMODE configurations in Grub, but nothing seems to do the trick. I have researched the issue for a few hours now, and have only come up with either outdated solutions, unresolved issues or different setups.

It seems disabling "quiet splash" at boot would do the trick. I'm going to test this further.
