This is not a bug in grub-installer, but in grub itself which the grub
maintainers do not want to fix. As it is specific to only qemu we also do
not want to create a special case for it in the installer.
As a workaround you can install in expert mode and use grub2 which does
work correctly with qemu in 64-bit mode.
