Corrupted grub screen in Precise alpha1
I found this during ISO testing. It is somewhat similar to bug #701111 (marked "fix released"), except that I'm using different hardware.
VGA compatible controller : 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 showing the left edge in the middle of the screen. Sometimes, it flashes backwards and forwards between the two. I've also attached a photo of the screen.
Grub itself behaves normally; it's just the display that's unstable.
Uncommenting the line
in /etc/default/grub and running "update-grub" fixes the problem, but of course renders the screen in a larger font.
