There was recently a kernel security fix.  It changed the running
kernel; the kernel version number did not change.  Therefore grub's
menu.list will look the same.  In general, when a new kernel version is
installed, there will be a new entry in menu.lst.

All your kernels should be in /boot.  Are there any there that don't
have matching entries in menu.list?
