update-grub uses commented out groot statement

Bug #145427 reported by Ergosys on 2007-09-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
grub (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Ubuntu 7.10 (gutsy)

The following commented out grub option still has an effect on the root device which is actually used:

# groot=(hd1,0)

Running update-grub, I get (hd1,0) in all menu.lst root statements. If I change this to (hd0,0), each root is changed to (hd0,0), as if the statement is not commented out at all.

This statement should have no effect whatsoever.
