Most probably you have too old grub.

Test :
try using name-completitions at grub prompt,
enter /<TAB> and see list of files,
a ) if there are non-letter characters appended at ends of files/dirs names
    your grub is too old, please upgrade it
b ) if there is no shit yet, try completing /boot/<TAB>
    if there is some appended, upgrade your grub
c ) if all file names are printed cleanly by grub
    wait for someone more competent than me ;-)
