[syslinux] trivial bug - or feature request

using simple menu and a timeout, and no menu default;

if I choose forex the 3rd boot-target, but dont hit return,
it will timeout, and reset the selection to thte 1st (default) boot target.
another timeout, and it boots that 1st target.

it seems more appropriate to either
a. end the timeout, and just wait for the user (grub, lilo do this iirc)
b. boot the manually selected target when timeout happens.

this is with 3.08-pre10, -pre7, and probably all others..
