Bug#544155: Found the same thing as what Witold Baryluk did

I'm using Thinkpad T43 too, and encounters the same problem. I did
similar tests as what Witold Baryluk did and found the same results.
Similarly, grub-pc has never used graphical terminal on my computer
since I switched from grub-legacy to grub-pc. Instead, it seems that
grub-pc always believes text-mode should be used. There may be
something T43 specific and hard to detect. Sorry, I can't help debug
it because I'm not familiar with grub2.
