Well, that means that it is not completely failing with such cfg
file. Only the 'timeout=120' is not working.

Note that the timeout change I mentioned was to remove the 'timeout
5' directive for testing purposes; I left the 'timeout=120' parameter
as it was before.
Please also note the additional 2 changes I suggested: the DEFAULT
directive and the space character between 'default_label=' and the
label itself. Using 'default_label= linuxfoo' is not the same as
'default_label=linuxfoo' (without a space character in between).
I am still wondering if using official binaries of version 4.06 and
version 4.07 for testing purposes would result in the exact same
behavior each time. With the information we currently have, it is
more difficult to determine whether the problem is in your re-build,
the specific version of Syslinux, or something else.
Perhaps Erwan Velu can enlighten us.
