Summary:  Grub timeout does not show countdown

Original Submission:  For some reason grub just leaves me hanging, waiting for 
me to press enter on bootup to select the kernel.  Does anyone know why?  I've 
got a timeout value set, so it should have a countdown, and then boot 
automatically.  If timeout=2, it should just wait 2 seconds, but instead it 
shows no countdown at all.  When I press enter, it goes in properly.  This may 
not be a bug, anyone know what I am doing wrong here?
