Why does not update-grub detect Fedora 13 installation?

On a newly installed Debian Testing system, I installed Fedora 13 in a
different partition but chose not to install the boot loaded since I
wanted to use Debian's boot loader for all OSes.

Now when I do update-grub in Debian, it detects all OSes installed in
the hard drives connected to the system (Windows XP, Windows 7, Fedor
9), but does not detect Fedora 13. I had to manually add the stanza
lines for F13 to get its option in the grub boot list.

I am using LVM. F13 is installed with its / mounted on
/dev/mapper/vg1-lv8 and its boot on /dev/sdc5. Update-grub appears to
miss detecting the kernels in /dev/sdc5 altogether. Any idea why is
that? Is there is a bug in Fedora 13?
