Okay, sorry. I am myself totally unacquainted with normal mode, so
maybe someone else can take this on?

Can you provide more detail?

That's odd. I guess there is another process which starts grub.
I don't have a machine handy on which I can try the installation, so
I have to work from memory. I am also in a train right now, so
I hope someone else answers in the mean time.

Just 296695@bugs.debian.org is fine.
