Corrupted grub screen in Trusty alpha 2

Bug Description

This is a continuation of bug 897921 which I've been requested to post as a new bug. (I think the mention of "Precise" in the old title is confusing.)

Hardware is
VGA compatible controller [0300]: VIA Technologies, Inc. CN896/VN896/P4M900 [Chrome 9 HC] [1106:3371] (rev 01)
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device [1043:81ce]

Output of lspci -vn is attached.

When I boot, the grub screen will appear to flash between appearing in the normal position and one showing the left edge in the middle of the screen. It makes choosing the correct entry from the menu more difficult than it needs to be.

Grub itself behaves normally; it's just the display that's unstable.

This has been a constant issue on this machine ever since Precise alpha 1.
