According to http://www.thundercross.freeserve.co.uk/html/gradius3.htm, at least the Asian version jumped straight to the title screen, without the demo.

Also, could you point out the glitches for me? The screenshot posted seems pretty consistent with the flyer..

I would like to see video from a real PCB to confirm this otherwise, I would say it's a case of BTANB

This shows the proper sequence, but I'm not certain if his set matches the one that does it or not. Without examining and understanding the CPU's DASM - it'll be hard to prove either way. It's easy to assume that all 3 sets should act the same.

As for the graphic glitches, there's a great example in the screenshot he posted at the left-side tip of the ship, where it overlaps the rock, there's discoloration of the tiles there. It happens along every edge of the silver ship where it meets the brown rock, the tile of rock turns red.

There's also a square block of red in the creatures left eye.

The linked Youtube video is from a Japanese PCB; note the difficulty select screen at 2:35. The "missing" intro in the non-Japanese sets is much more likely to be a genuine version difference than an emulation bug, especially when you consider that Konami games from this period often had major differences between Japanese and non-Japanese versions (xmen, xexex, thunder cross etc.)

What BarnacleEd said, plus other red screen matrix clashes under the ship's left wing, close to the lower border's missiles.

Both of these issues are present on actual hardware:
