To my eye it appears to be the same problem that PXELINUX has as well;
it's almost like comBIOS is trying to use ANSI/VT100 commands to
translate the INT10 stuff that the loaders are doing, but the commands
are not complete. What I see when GRUB is loading and running almost
looks like the commands missing the ESC characters, but I haven't really
looked very closely :-)
GRUB works fine when told to use the serial port directly; PXELINUX
works OK as long as you only need to load the default kernel, or are
willing to type in the label you need without much useful feedback
(although I will also try the hacked serial-only PXELINUX as well).
