a bug when using grub to boot freebsd

when I was using grub to boot my freebsd 6.0,I find a bug,it is like this!

If you use splashimage and use grub to boot freebsd by command,not through the menu,then you can't boot your freebsd system!

The details is like this!
Assume your freebsd is in (hd0,0,a),and if you write things like below in grub.conf
the system will boot,and everything is fine!

title freebsd
root (hd0,0,a)
kernel /boot/loader

But if you press "c" on the screen of grub menu and want to boot your freebsd system through command by hand,the problem will rise!

after your have pressd "c" on the screen of grub menu,you type these things like below:

grub>root (hd0,0,a)
  Filesystem type is ufs2,partition type is 0xa5
grub>kernel /boot/loader

then the  splashimage screen won't disappear, and the freebsd booting information will be in the spalshimage,and after the acpi.ko module was loaded,the system is down!

And I have checked if I don't use splashimage,then all the things are fine!
and if I use the grub of FC5 with splashimage on,all the things are fine too.
so I think it must be the grub on freebsd itself which is the criminal!

Can anybody tell me how to fix this problem!
