Comment 9 for bug 742967

This bug was fixed in the package grub2 - 1.99~rc1-8ubuntu1

grub2 (1.99~rc1-8ubuntu1) natty; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
    - Adjust for default Ubuntu boot options ("quiet splash").
    - Default to hiding the menu; holding down Shift at boot will show it.
    - Set a monochromatic theme and an aubergine background for Ubuntu.
    - Apply Ubuntu GRUB Legacy changes to legacy update-grub script: title,
      recovery mode, quiet option, tweak how memtest86+ is displayed, and
      use UUIDs where appropriate.
    - Fix backslash-escaping in merge_debconf_into_conf.
    - Remove "GNU/Linux" from default distributor string.
    - Add crashkernel option.
    - Bypass menu unless other OSes are installed or Shift is pressed.
    - Allow Shift to interrupt 'sleep --interruptible'.
    - Reduce visual clutter in normal mode.
    - Remove verbose messages printed before reading configuration.
    - Suppress kernel/initrd progress messages, except in recovery mode.
    - Handle filesystems loop-mounted on file images.
    - Ignore devices loop-mounted from files in Linux grub.d scripts.
    - Show the boot menu if the previous boot failed.
    - Don't generate during grub-install or grub-mkconfig.
    - Adjust upgrade version checks for Ubuntu.
    - Suppress "GRUB loading" message unless Shift is held down.
    - Adjust versions of grub-doc and grub-legacy-doc conflicts.
    - Fix LVM/RAID probing in the absence of /boot/grub/
    - Look for .mo files in /usr/share/locale-langpack first.
    - Build-depend on qemu-kvm rather than qemu-system for grub-pc tests.
    - Add a grub-rescue-efi-amd64 package.
    - On Wubi, don't ask for an install device, but just update wubildr
      using the diverted grub-install.
    - Check hardware support before using gfxpayload=keep.
    - Build part_msdos and vfat into EFI boot images.
    - Put second and subsequent Linux menu entries in a submenu.
    - Preferred resolution detection for VBE.
    - Set vt.handoff=7 for smooth handoff to kernel graphical mode.
  * Drop patch to use qemu rather than qemu-system-i386, now that qemu-kvm
    ships a symlink.
  * Rewrite hwmatch.lua in C. Drop lua grub-extras module.
  * Update ubuntu_vbe_autodetect.patch, bringing GRUB_GFXMODE documentation
    up to date.
  * Fix use of freed memory when replacing existing loopback device
    (LP: #742967).

grub2 (1.99~rc1-8) unstable; urgency=low

  * Cherry-pick from upstream:
    - Fix FreeBSD compilation problem.

grub2 (1.99~rc1-7) unstable; urgency=low

  * Add /proc/mdstat, LVM information, and listings of /dev/disk/by-id/ and
    /dev/disk/by-uuid/ to bug reports, by request of upstream.
  * Cherry-pick from upstream:
    - Use libgeom on FreeBSD to detect partitions (closes: #612128).
    - Copy the partition table zone if floppy support is disabled, even if
      no partition table is found (LP: #741867).
    - Fix an ext2 overflow affecting inodes past 2TiB.
    - Fix RAID-0 disk size calculation for metadata 1.x (LP: #743136).
  * Merge from Ubuntu:
    - Build with gcc-4.5 on ppc64.
    - Add apport hook for ProblemType = 'Package', thanks to Jean-Baptiste
      Lallement (LP: #591753).
