A similar horizontal shift occurs when the TIMEOUT is higher than 99 
(the message gets re-centered).

If this is so annoying, I would suggest changing the directive from:

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


 "MENU AUTOBOOT Automatischer Start in # Sekunde(n)"

Please note the changes, from curly brackets to round brackets and no
