I've updated grub in this morning to version 0.95+cvs20040624-
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

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.
