I'm seeing much the same right shifting of the console while running a
serial console.  System is Dell T110 PowerEdge, running Ubuntu 10.04
Lucid.  Serial Console is running on windows with the same results using
either a mintty windows or a Cygwin X xterm window.  It mostly seems to
affect shutdown messages rather than boot messages, and, as far as I can
figure out it's related to shutdown messages generated using echo -n.
When the "newline" finally comes it causes a line feed but not a
carriage return.  The text gradually shifts right making some of it
unreadable.  I'm not sure this is the same problem you're seeing, but it
sounds very similar.
