Changing grub2 timeout: Fedora 18

Hello,

I had my grub2 timeout set at 10 the other day (it was working), then I did a clean install and now when I'm trying to set it again and its not working.

I go into root, edit the /etc/default/grub

GRUB_TIMEOUT=10

save and run: grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.conf

The grub.conf file shows the timeout set at 10, but when I reboot its still counts down from 5. Why did this work before, and not now?

Thanks!
