Default No progress indicator in bootsplash

I emerged media-gfx/splashutils- (plus
media-gfx/splash-themes-gentoo-20050429). I'm on kernel
2.6.24-gentoo-r8 (non-genkernel) with uvesafb and "Support for the
Framebuffer Console Decorations" enabled.

USE flags for splashutils: fbcondecor gpm mng png truetype -hardened

I've created an initrd with:

splash_geninitramfs -g /boot/initrd.splash1280x1024 -r 1280x1024 gentoo

My kernel parameters:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.25-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/sdc1
splash=silent,fadein,fadeout,theme:gentoo console=tty1 BOOT_MSG="Cool,
huh?" softlevel=native


initrd parameter:

initrd /boot/initrd.splash1280x1024

The splash shows up, but there's no animation in the progress indicator
bar and no splash messages (like the live CD has). Just a static image.
(Fade-in and fade-out works though).

Did I miss something?
