Thanks for the poke. I've finally managed to allocate a few moments to look into it. The patch seems reasonable to me as well, so I've pushed it (along with a few typo fixes) to master, and uploaded a 1.103 package. I'll probably have it hinted into testing shortly. http://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/d-i/grub-installer.git/commit/?id=67d7246accead493823e34f933aea7887d191ea7 Thanks, Andrew! Mraw, KiBi.
