Comment 34 for bug 699802

#24 fixed it for me in 11.04 (with encrypted root and swap and separate, unencrypted boot partition).

(Although, now I have a new problem: my cheap LCD monitor can't recognize the resolution requested by the GRUB screen. Ugh!)

So, this is verified as a font path issue. I have to say, this bug is a real stinker. It demonstrates that a new Ubuntu was released and nobody bothered to even try full-disk encryption before releasing it...?

Does anybody else miss LILO? I've had more GRUB problems in the past 4 years than in the previous 10 years with LILO! HEY GRUB TEAM, STOP BREAKING GRUB.

Sorry, had to vent. An entire product release was delayed due to this stinker.
