    Very I one of the very few affected by this ?? I 
found a bug on bugzilla
that referred to programs in the util-linux package as causing the 
problem...they were apparently
updated but that didn't solve my problem. For now I have grub installed 
from my Debian partition so the lack of a working grub.cfg
doesn't cause me major problems.
