  Latest two versions of grub-common do not honor shift key.

Status in grub2 package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: grub

  Intel core2 duo, intel EMT64 Karmic.  Proposed update to kernel
  subversion 20 when loaded found that shift key will not enter grub
  menu..  Problem isolated to the grub-common file.  Had to revert to
  the 1ubuntu3 version of grub-common to make grub 1,97 beta honor the
  shift key at boot time. The later 2 versions of grub-common do not
  honor the shift key.
