I'd just note that the bug is not just limited to producing odd characters round the border.

Failure to load the font also causes a block of config code to be omitted, in my case this is:

if loadfont $font ; then
  set gfxmode=1024x768
  insmod gfxterm
  set locale_dir=$prefix/locale
  set lang=en_GB
  insmod gettext

which has a more serious effect - the gfxmode is not set, and if you have a high resolution screen, the grub menu becomes too small to read.
