I think so... here is what I did:

1) I used the distro's PKGBUILD[1] and substituted the commit you created (_GRUB_GIT_COMMIT="e89c2d48a991590c18c28ac867ccda67d4425187") for the current version in the PKGBUILD (_GRUB_GIT_COMMIT="bca274b45597725f21f77a773087b62a2922eb2b").
2) Build and installed the package.
3) Mount /boot/efi
4) grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=arch --recheck --debug
5) grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

I build this from git commit e89c2d48a991590c18c28ac867ccda67d4425187 but the original bug as I described it is still present.

Excellent, can you point me to the commit(s) that I can apply to v2.00.5086?

2560/8=320. Currently GRUB is limited to width of 256 and it's indeed a problem. Problem that it's quite deeply entrenched in terminal subsystem.

After recently upgrading to a 2560x1440 display, I edited /etc/grub/default to use a 2560x1440 background pic. Upon regenerating /boot/grub/grub.cfg and rebooting, I noticed that the boot menu has been compressed into a much smaller rectangle in the far left of the display. I do not see any option to adjust this so I am assuming it is a bug. The background image itself is displayed correctly in what I believe to be 2560x1440 as requested.

I added a low quality (phone, sorry) pic that shows you what I see when grub loads as well as a few relevant config files.

  • /etc/default/grub
  • /boot/grub/grub.cfg (this is auto-generated)

This system runs Arch Linux and is up-to-date (distro package is [core]/grub 2.00.5043-2). The monitor is connected via the display port, not the DVI or HDMI port which may or may not be relevant.
