I don't think this will be fixed ..

The new LTS will most likely use the "search-for-disk-with-uuid-x and set that as ROOT if found" mechanism from the new grub releases. Easiest way for now is to first live edit the config at first regular boot after install (set root(x,y) to whatever you need it to be), then delete /boot/grub/menu.lst and run update-grub again ..

.. and don't change the BIOS boot order from that point onward ..

But this solution doesn't scale very well :-)
