  'reinstall grub' option missing when rescuing encrypted LVM system

Status in “debian-installer” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Image: Quantal Beta 1 amd64 20120903.2

  I installed a system with encrypted LVM, then rebooted and picked the option to boot rescue mode from the boot media.  I was able to mount root just fine, and execute a shell in it, but the only options in the 'rescue operations' menu are:
  Execute a shell in /dev/beta1-server/root
  Execute a shell in the installer environment
  Choose a different root file system
  Reboot the system

  jibel pointed out that you can get the option to reinstall grub if you execute the shell in your root, then manually mount /boot and exit the shell.  Once you do this, the option will show up on the menu
