This bug was fixed in the package grub2 - 1.96+20080724-12ubuntu1

grub2 (1.96+20080724-12ubuntu1) jaunty; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian Unstable (LP: #298872, LP: #256578).
    Remaining Ubuntu changes:
    + debian/control:
      - Depend on rather than Suggest os-prober; Ubuntu version does not
        suffer from the mount problem that prevents Debian from marking this
    + debian/default/grub
      - Adjust for default Ubuntu boot options.
      - Use new GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT option to set "quiet splash" for
        default items only. These options won't be set in single user mode.
    + debian/patches/03_ubuntu_grub_standards
      - Remove GNU/Linux from default string.
  * New upstream snapshot includes ext4 extents support (LP: #294763)
  * Debian patch 02_dpkg_version_comparison.diff fixes kernel ordering
    (LP: #215513)
  * debian/patches/04_uuids_and_abstraction_dont_play_along_nicely:
    + Drop. Ubuntu's mdadm and lvm properly populate /dev/disk/by-uuid, so
      this workaround is unnecessary.
  * debian/changelog:
    + Drop duplicated 1.96+20080203-1ubuntu2 and 1.96+20080203-1ubuntu1
      entries. We only really need them in there once!
  * Drop debian/patches/04_convert_root_uuid:
    - GRUB2 upstream now uses UUIDs when possible.

Either this is not complete, or it is not complete for extents. grub-pc (1.96-20080724-12ubuntu1) saw my ext4 partition and was able to "ls" it, but it said that my initrd image was invalid (or corrupt) and it couldn't read the grub.cfg file either. Actually, it gave a parser error about the grub.cfg file and showed a line of HTML as the error. It clearly read the wrong file or block in both cases.

After creating a new ext3 /boot partition and copying the old /boot files there (and rerunning grub-install), I was able to boot.
