Read the full history here : http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=401393 I had the surprise one day, with my workstation, it could not boot after a kernel upgrade (I was following etch/testing). I had to repartition an create a separate /boot. I do that systematically since, 100Mo as the first partition. So that I can use grub again, which is less dangerous.
