[syslinux] Dualhead issue

my primary monitor is a LCD HDMI2 and the secondary monitor is a CRT
VGA1. The CRT monitor is only turned on on demand, but always connected
by VGA.

The BIOS is shown on both monitors, but the syslinux menu only on the
CRT, as long as the CRT is connected by VGA. Even if it's turned off,
the syslinux menu isn't shown on the LCD connected by HDMI.

[root at archlinux ~]# pacman -Q syslinux 
syslinux 6.03-7

Is there a way to get the syslinux menu displayed on both monitors or at
least only on the LCD monitor?

FWIW xrandr shows HDMI1 and HDMI2, but there is only one HDMI output
assigned to HDMI2.
