  Joey, please check the BTS or the debian-boot list before going further.
  When I received the bug report, I immediately worked with debian-boot
  people and everything was fixed a few days later, although nothing had
  broken in _testing_. I do considered that everything was prepared in order
  not to break boot-floppies from testing.
  What's wrong with this?
