For the records, I found the reason for this problem. It was apparently
caused by a grub update. Grub2 was using the same maximum monitor
resolution as I'm using in the GUI, 1280x1024. For some reason the
adjustment for the monitor is a bit different each time in grub, and the
monitor can only handle one adjustment per resolution. I changed the
grub2 settings so that the grub2 menu is shown in another resolution,
(GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480), and the problem vanished.
