I have those set, and grub is not the problem. If I let grub use it's gfx
mode, I do not get any msgs at all nor do I get the splash screen.
So I normally remove 'splash' and 'quiet' so I can get the msgs... and vga-
normal was just an attempt to force a reasonable console mode.
And it would be my guess that CTL-ALT-BkSpc doesn't work anymore. It does
nothing when I try it.
The problem remains.
