I tested this under 6.03+some patches with the following config:

UI menu.c32

LABEL single
  KERNEL blah

LABEL other
  KERNEL foo

After typing in either label, the error message is displayed and I get
back the boot: prompt.  The menu system is not restarted.  I recommend
you start from here.
Good luck,
