Bug#375927: RAID: groot is always set to (hd0,0)

Package: debian-installer
Severity: grave

I tried the latest dailly snapshot of the etch debian-install cd.
The installation went pretty smoothly, there was one major issue though:
I setup a software raid (RAID1) with the following layout:
md0 (sda1,sdb1) => swap
md1 (sda2,sdb2) => /
The hard disks are attached via SATA.
grub is installed correctly, but groot in /boot/grub/menu.lst is set to 
(hd0,0), so update-grub generates a /boot/grub/menu.lst, where root is 
not correctly set leading to an unbootable system (this is the reason,
why I set the severity to grave).
I did not encounter this behaviour on a non-raid system, groot is then
correctly set. So my guess is, that d-i (or is it grub?) does not correctly
deal with /dev/md* devices.
