Please report bugs that you found in the packages to the backports
mailinglist and NOT to the Debian BTS!
... so forwarding to debian-backports.
I'd like to see a newer version of grub2 in backports; 1.97~beta3 is
pretty archaic and we do occasionally get people asking us upstream if
there's a newer version available. I don't have time to do this myself,
but I can offer help to somebody who does.
