I do, both. I also have an encrypted partition (not /, entered in /etc/crypttab),
and I do have graphical boot. When the point is reached to unlock the partition
plymouth switches back to the text console so I can enter the passphase (there
is no prompt, but just entering the passphase works)

Where do I have to kick to get the graphical dialog?
