For me its a debian QA issue.
grub may have bugs, as well as linux kernel - and of cause, each bug may break
a system or lead to fresh installation, which does not work.
That's no problem - if it happens at sid or testing.
... but for me, its completely unacceptable having this happen to debian
No other linux distribution has that QA-level of debian, so it may happen on
every other linux too.
Debian stable is a synonym for really good (and unreached by others) QA - and
this has been broken now.
