It's definitely incompatibility between grub and the console emulation. If
you tell grub to only use serial, then it works as you'd expect.
I just tried using:
(i.e. not using serial directly), to see if grub's console output would be ok
without interference from it also sending directly to serial. That does not work.
"terminal serial" is the only option that gives you recognizable output from grub.
