   Thanks for the ideas. But I know that the bootloader is reading the
   grub.cfg file correctly.

   As I showed with the screenshot and original description, the boot menu
   says "The highlighted entry will be executed automatically in 5s" when
   GRUB_TIMEOUT=5. When I change this to -1, that message disappears. In
   both cases, the boot menu flashes on and then immediately disappears
   before it can even be read. (I used a camera to see it.)

   The question seems to be why GRUB does not respect the timeout?

If you remove the grub.cfg file, the grub boot loader should drop to a command l
ine and stop.      If it doesn't drop to the command line, then your bootloader
is pulling its menu file from a non-standard location, which is why any changes
you make are not being reflected.

You can then use a linux install disc in recovery mode to remount the drive and
rename the grub.cfg file back afterwards if it does drop to command line.

   Pardon? What should I expect to happen?
   You are suggesting to basically delete the grub.cfg file by renaming
   it, right? Will that even allow my system to boot?!

         Althought I have configured the boot menu timout to 5 seconds,
     the boot
         menu only flashes on screen briefly for 3/100ths of a second and
         disappears. I have tried all sorts of combinations of
         changes and just cannot seem to do anything to get the boot menu
         actually stay on the screen.

     What is displayed if you rename grub.cfg ?
