Password is required for all entries when superuser is set

Bug Description

After upgrading to grub2 version 2.00-3ubuntu1 on Quantal, a user/password combination is required for all entries, if superuser is set by invoking "set superusers" in a script in /etc/grub.d.

I'd like the password to be required for everything else except the default boot entry, which is how it worked in previous, 1.99, version.
