[syslinux] Boot prompt ignored

Using a boot prompt without a menu makes Syslinux 6.03-6 booting the 
default label only, ignoring the label that was entered. Auto completion 
of the defined labels works, though. Can anyone confirm this? 

Further, removing the DEFAULT <label> definition makes Syslinux panic, 
ignoring any boot label or command entered. Instead, without a default, 
I'd expect it to wait for user input, thus ignoring the TIMEOUT
