In my testing, I can confirm that installing a squeeze kernel package on a
system with lenny grub succeeds in updating /boot/grub/menu.lst without
incident.  So you may be right that this is a non-issue.  I'm asking the
folks who commented on the mailing list for logs, to help pinpoint if
there's something here that we've overlooked; but we shouldn't hold up our
call for upgrade testing waiting for such logs to appear, in the absence of
some other evidence of a problem when using grub.
