Bug#292514: debian-installer: with raid1 grub defaults to groot=(hd0,0) instead of real groot

Package: debian-installer
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

*** Please type your report below this line ***
I just installed using debian-installer rc2 on a system with the
following disk-setup:
* 2 identical disks, partitioned identical as:
  - /dev/hd[ab]1 - swap   NOT a raid but 2 individual swap-partitions
  - /dev/hd[ab]2 - /boot  RAID-1 as /dev/md0
  - /dev/hd[ab]3 - /      RAID-1 as /dev/md1

The install works fine and reboots afterwards but then boot fails
because grub thinks that /boot is on (hd0,0) (where (hd0,1) would be

The obvious way to fix it is to boot by manally changing root to (hd0,1)
and then edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to change "groot=(hd0,0)" into
