This bug was fixed in the package grub - 0.97-29ubuntu63

grub (0.97-29ubuntu63) oneiric; urgency=low

  * Handle comparisons involving two-digit kernel versions (LP: #809401).
  * Backport from Debian 0.97-39 (LP: #720558):
    - Support for Xen style xvd[a-z] devices. Thanks Ian Campbell.
      (Closes: #456776)
  * Don't use UUIDs for expressing xvd* devices as GRUB drives, as PV-GRUB
    can't handle it.
