Thanks. I'm beginning to think reportbug is going to be the solution
to this. I've created a generic menu.lst, run update-grub numerous
times, reinstalled grub2, replaced it with grub-legacy, ...
The suggested "grub-config" doesn't exist (apt-file search doesn't
find it), update-grub complains bitterly about the ptns:
[ 1326.943454 ] UFS-fs error (device hda1): ufs_check_page: \
bad entry in directory #2 ...
I've added OBSD to /etc/grub.d/40_custom ... No joy.
