plymouth log viewer - boot messages

It doesn't seem to be fixed. It looks like there are some extra result fields which don't have any corresponding message.

This bug got changed into "plymouth log viewer should be in a monospace font"

Jon McCann filed 3 separate bugs for the other output issues (against their relevant components).

I've updated the bug summary now to make that clearer.
