That is just not true. The question of grub paths will _only_ be asked if 
you select "do not install in the MBR of the first disk".
The only extra question that could be asked during grub installation is a 
grub password, and that is only asked at _low_ priority, i.e. two levels 
down from the default.

Because of your problems with raid/lvm, it seems you have been backing up 
to the menu several times.

There is, it is called "Set debconf priority". You can use that to set the 
priority back to "high".
