It becomes interesting if /usr/lib/os-probes/50mounted-tests from the
1,42 version of os-prober replaces the corresponding file on /target.
With linux-image-686-pae the 30_os-prober section of grub.cfg still does
not have any entries for a Linux OS but a Windows Vista OS is detected
and recorded,

Then, on replacing 50mounted-tests in /target/usr/lib/linux-boot-probes/
with the corresponding one from os-prober 1.42, the expected grub.cfg is

The methodology may not be the best but it seems sufficient to indicate
the bug should be reassigned.
