Yes, grub was running natively.

Same boot disk. Same version of grub. Same copy of menu.lst. No manual
modifications made either.

This is an old version of grub though, but still, I can't see any bug
doing this...

I reproduced the bug several times. Install grub, system won't boot,
install gnumach (via Linux), system will boot, reinstall grub, system
won't boot...

(file-system corruption? e2fsck reported no errors...)
