Vladimir: I cannot reproduce the bug at will, actualy it works for me now. Either its a random occurence, or my bad and I maybe put the argument between the linux and /vmlinuz words.
I suggest closing the bug as worksforme and if I find something else out, I'll reopen it.
Thank you for looking at the problem.
Regards, Mark

Could you supply an iso for qemu that exhibits a problem? I couldn't reproduce anything of what you describe.

a finding: it's related to the kernel line agrument length, eg.

  • linux /vmlinuz26 root=/dev/disk/by-label/arch cryptdevice=/dev/sda7:preDevice resume=/dev/mapper/swapDevice ro quiet console=tty1 logo.nologo splash=silent,theme:arch-banner-icons,fadein,fadeout rootdelay=2 fastboot

still boots ok,
but adding 'nohz=off' makes the ctrl^x unable to start (note modifying the grub.cfg in text editor and starting with just pressing enter at choice selection still works well, just the ctrl x doesn't)

env: grub2 on Archlinux, i686.

steps to reproduce:
-press 'e' to edit a menu item
-(now still ctrl-x works)
-edit some line (eg add single to linux line), this causes my grub ignore ctrl-x presses.

Thank you, Mark
