Are you stating that is a bug/error?
Well, no. That is why patch is in quotes in the title of this topic
The problem is with Startup Manager, the tool with which you can configure your startup parameters through a GUI instead of having to use the command line to edit your configuration file. Startup Manager only sees the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=" vga=792" in you case, and not the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" line. It ignores that line. So you can not use Startup Manager to disable quiet or splash. If you merge those settings into GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX, the Startup Manager can be used to configure this. That is the "patch".
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX is however used both for normal mode and for recovery mode, while GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT is only used for normal mode. It is preferable to only tweak settings for normal mode and not touch recovery mode settings--so that if you break anything you can still easily boot with recovery mode. But Startup Manager seems to think otherwise
