Bug#534644: os-prober: linux-boot-prober does not detect a separate boot partition

Package: os-prober
Version: 1.35
Severity: normal

I am running Debian as my main OS on /dev/hda3
However I am running CentOS on /dev/hda8 with a separate boot partition on /dev/hda1

/dev/hda8:CentOS release 5.3 (Final):RedHat:linux

and running
linux-boot-prober /dev/hda8
returns nothing (void)

whereas running 
linux-boot-prober /dev/hda1

As a consequence, update-grub does not add any line for CentOS in /boot/grub.conf
