Couldn't reproduce. Which images did you use? What did "pxe client reset"

I have a setup where pxe clients boot grub over the network and boot different operating systems based on user's choice.
Now I have a need to load a custom PXE boot loader from pxegrub and pxechainloader seems to load the image (confirmed with tcpdump output) but running the boot command after pxechainloader, it resets the pxe client.
I have verified that the PXE image works fine with used without pxegrub (pxe clients can directly load and run the custom pxe image).
I also tried reloading the pxegrub image from within the PXE booted grub, but it too reset the pxe client.

I'm using grub from the git master as pxechainloader seems to be broken in grub-2.00

Commands to reproduce:

pxechainloader pxegrub.0
