I am only guessing here, but it is possible that your problem is 
related to a bug introduced after 5.02pre1 (see 
http://www.syslinux.org/archives/2013-February/019597.html ) which is 
not yet solved in 5.10pre1. I could, of course, be wrong.

Although the original bug report is about the CONFIG directive, in 
your isolinux.cfg file you also change to a new cfg file, located in 
a different directory, loading [vesa]menu.c32 again.

Although 5.02pre1 has its own issues too, I would suggest testing 
your isolinux.cfg with 5.02-pre1, at least to confirm whether the 
behavior is the same or not.

Note: Your isolinux.cfg will fail with 5.01 too (but not for the same 
reasons). That's why I suggest testing with 5.02-pre1.
