Interesting, that could very well be it.  You don't happen to link to
a bug report that I can take a look at and follow for updates?

Another issue I noticed at the same time, and I don't know when this
happened really, is that I don't seem to have a fully functional
keyboard in my grub menu.  Arrow keys and enter works fine, but there
is no effect when pressing 'e' or 'c'.  I haven't noticed any issues
with the keyboard earlier when the booting succeeded.  As mentioned
earlier, I'll have to research this in more detail.
