Bug#511473: debian-installer: daily build seems to generate of by one partition numbers for Windows boot

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

I downloaded the installed as a daily build yesterday (so, no idea where to
find a version number if there is one) and reinstalled one of my old systems.
This old system has an old Windows installation on /dev/hda1. I chose grub2 as
boot manager in the installer, which worked nicely until I tried to boot into
Windows which was not possible because the entry in grub.cfg said "set
root=(hd0,0)" instead of "set root=(hd0,1)". Changing this made the system boot
