[syslinux] Menu entry shifts to the right, when using "{,x}"

my linux distribution is "arch-linux" and I use syslinux 6.03 to boot
this system. I have the following line in syslinux.cfg:

"MENU AUTOBOOT Automatischer Start in # Sekunde{,n}"

While the boot timer counts down, on the last second the menu shifts to
the right (one less character to display). This is completely harmless,
but is very annoying, once you have seen it.

I would suggest that these line should have a left hand position, which
would result in no movement of this line.

best regards
