@Colin, is this attempt of yours - to run after that misbehaving application developers - really a clean solution. Wouldn't it be great to have an additional feature for all boot capeable Linux filesystems:

- keep the first 32Kib empty and reserved for grub if there is an additional flag (boot) set when mkfs

This flag could be the default for all partitions on non embedded,tiny systems.
