Yes, same issue on HP Compaq nx6325, which had been running grub with WinXP SP3 and Suse 10.1 fine. Tried many of the remedies here to no avail over hours of wasted time. So, went with Ubuntu 9.04 as the solution.

If Grub 2 for dual-booting breaks something that had been working in prior versions just fine, can we call it a bug? Telling users to complain to HP or Dell or Microsoft seems counterproductive, as they are not responsible for grub. Also, Ubuntu 9.10 seems to justify the claim that Linux is not ready for prime time, which is a shame.
