Description Steve Bonneville 2001-07-06 12:52:24 EDT
Description of Problem:

In vga16 mode, when selecting a GRUB menu entry to boot, the text 
countdown at the bottom of the screen
  "The highlighted entry will be booted automatically in xx seconds."
doesn't disappear when the arrow keys are used to highlight a different
menu entry.  It does in text mode.

Additional Information:
Cosmetic glitch that doesn't seem to affect functionality.
