Yes I know that too.

"*edit*    /boot/grub/grub.cfg" is not the right thing.
"*inspect* /boot/grub/grub.cfg" is good  thing.

If other partition has an old broken grub configuration due to broken grub
installation caused by rc2 d-i, update-grub does not work as expected.
So as a last resort measure, we can edit it (but do not blame others if
your modificatio is overwritten by runing "update-grub".)
