Bug Description

Kubuntu Desktop 20111013

I resized an existing Ubuntu partition and installed Kubuntu on the second partition. After installation, grub shows Kubuntu entries as Ubuntu. It should be labelled Kubuntu.

I attached grub.cfg generated at installation time.

This also occurs with Lubuntu. Haven't checked Xubuntu lately but for quite some time, maybe since the introduction of grub 2, all Ubuntu variants show up in the grub menu as "Ubuntu".
