How big is the filesystem on /dev/sda1, and does it contain any sensitive data? If it's not too big (no more than one or two GB at the outside) and if there's nothing private on it, then it would be great if I could have a copy so that I can debug this.

Changed in grub2 (Ubuntu):
status: New → Incomplete

/dev/sda1 is 23GB, its a 'hidden' recovery partition which I can share. The zipped image is 18G, I could also give you the first x bytes?

/dev/sda1 1 2805 22531131 1c Hidden W95 FAT32 (LBA)

That would still have been too big, but never mind - I figured out the cause and fixed this as bug 756297.
