I've updated grub in this morning to version 0.95+cvs20040624-184.108.40.206.pure64
from debian-amd64.alioth.debian.org, and tried to boot up an initrd kernel
afterwards with the following result:
Booting 'Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.7-5-amd64-k8-smp '
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.7-5-amd64-k8-smp root=/dev/sda1 ro

Last time the result was same as above, so patch didn't help for me :-(
I'm able to boot any kernel without initrd with grub.
I'll gladly test any further version of grub.
