 I'm pretty sure it's because the debug option isn't actually activated
 when the menu isn't entered. The safemode settings are only appended when
 the menu options are parsed and since the menu entries are only built when
 the menu is actually entered, they aren't there when just booting without
 entering the menu. At least that's why the default option of "Disable IO-
 APIC" we had didn't work at all, it would only get applied when you
 manually entered the menu on boot.

 6foot3 could you try entering the menu on the first boot and check the
 debug options (it should already have the debug syslog feature ticked).
 Then just leave the menu again and continue booting.
