Grub serial port problem

I am trying to get the grub screen displayed uniquely on the serial console, but for some reason, it is only shown on the actual vga console.

Here is my grub.conf

serial --unit=0 --speed=115200
terminal serial
default=0
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Fedora Core (2.6.20-1.2925.fc6)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.20-1.2925.fc6 ro root=LABEL=/ console=ttyS0,115200
        initrd /initrd-2.6.20-1.2925.fc6.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.18-1.2798.fc6)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.img

For the record, after I select a kernel by using the keyboard, then all output IS shown on the serial console, so that actually works.

I found there was a bug in a GRUB: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub/+bug/32904 

Try to remove "splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz" and change a line "terminal serial" to "terminal serial console".
