It's nice to see that the bug's been fixed already. We usually
encourage people to get bugs fixed through point releases (if
feasible) instead of fixing through backports. I've added the
grub-pc maintainers in copy, feel free to discuss your bug and
the possibly already identified bug fix so that they consider
backporting it to stable.
