For anyone watching this bug, the easy fix here for 12.10 and later (we intend to backport to 12.04) is:
 echo GRUB_RECORDFAIL_TIMEOUT=0 | sudo tee -a /etc/default/grub
 sudo update-grub

the 'update-grub' is necessary to make the change take affect, and also to avoid a config-file prompt on grub upgrade.
