Bug Description

In Ubuntu 13.04, setting a jpg picture as background for the Grub menu, no longer works. It has no perceptible effect at all.

Strangely enough, it still *does* work in Lubuntu 13.04. Maybe because Lubuntu has less theming in Grub?

Steps to reproduce:
- install Ubuntu 13.04
- install all available updates
- in the Grub menu, check with the command vbeinfo, which resolution Grub supports for your display
- boot normally
- scale a jpg picture to the right resolution
- put the picture in /boot/grub
- perform sudo update-grub
- reboot
