I just checked again and os-prober is intalled on my system. I am not
sure why I missed this earlier.

Curiously though, update-grub is now detecting Fedora 13! It was not
doing so last night. And my bash history shows that I did not install
os-prober between then and now.

I check my aptitude log and it shows that os-prober was on HOLD three
days ago (I supposed when I did the initial installation). After that
installation, the trunk kernel and grub in Testing were giving problems
so I pulled those from Unstable. Perhaps this messed up os-prober somehow.

Today I was messing around with scim. Last night I did a full-upgrade.
And now I notice that F13 is being detected by update-grub.

I wish I would tell what I changed. So even though the problem is
solved, but I am at a loss to explain what did it.
