Loading grub 0.97 from the ubuntu repositories is Not the solution.
After the 3rd boot into windows its back to the normal Grub 2 failure mode.
Grub 0.97 is some sort of hybrid - the menu.lst file doesn't contain any windows settings - just a GRUB 2 Chainloader setting - see below

title Chainload into GRUB 2
root 4b8177ca-f6fc-4bbb-8989-b8b2a03d19d7
kernel /boot/grub/core.img

replacing this with a standard grub instruction eg

title Windows XP Professional
root (hd0,0)
savedefault
makeactive
chainloader +1

doesn't fix the problem.

As this computer doesn't belong to me, I can't just delete something from Windows so I'll be reverting to 9.04 until the problem is fixed.
