Testing uses grub2 by default.  

# update-grub<cr> 

creates a new grub.cfg file, which is the replacement for menu.lst,
based on info in certain magical locations in /etc. If you have an
incomplete list of installed kernels after a fresh install, just rerun
update-grub, and that should fix it. 

YMMV, HTH, etc, etc
