As I already said in the report, we added a debconf prompt so
grub-install gets automatically run, if you choose a device in there.
Run sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc to see it (again).
Doing anything else is just a workaround and doestn't fix the problem
for the next time when add again something to grub.cfg which isn't
compatible with older versions of GRUB.
