Bug#374629: kdm: BootManager=Lilo has no effect, booting from /dev/sda

Package: kdm
Version: 4:3.5.3-2
Severity: normal

Hash: SHA1

I recently moved my boot partition onto a SATA drive, so the physical hard
disks were swapped like:

/dev/hda -> removed
/dev/hdb -> /dev/hda
added    -> /dev/sda

The contents of /dev/hda were copied to /dev/sda, which is now my boot volume.
But now when I select Log Out in KDE or Shutdown in KDM I am not presented with
boot options.  It seems likely that KDM does not understand that I'm booting
from sda, not hda.  Although lilo.conf does clearly say "boot=/dev/sda", so I
am unsure exactly what is going on.
