Ubuntu 12.04
Kernel 3.2.0-58-generic
Memory 8GB
Processor Core i3 M370 @ 2.4 GHz

The latest updates to GRUB that implement the GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE setting seem
to break the ability to bypass the GRUB menu.

I have a laptop with a 2nd hard disk replacing the (seldom used) CD drive.
Linux (Ubuntu) is installed on the primary hard drive. Windows 7 is installed
on the secondary drive. I almost always boot to Linux and so I bypass the OS
selection menu in GRUB so as to have fastest boot possible to Linux. In the
rare instances when I boot to Windows I hold down the esc key.

This ability seems to be broken as of the latest GRUB updates that implement
the GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE option in /etc/default/grub. There's no way to bypass
the GRUB OS selection menu. I've tried many variations of that option with and

Is this a bug in the latest GRUB or a feature, or am I missing something in
the setup?
