The fix for this bug is that, when your locally-modified menu.lst
disagrees with how update-grub would calculate the boot entries, a
warning is shown letting you know about this inconsistency. There is no
way that we can reliably "fix" the fact that the autogenerated entries
don't match your local modifications, because the generated entries are
generated based on the kopt and groot values that you didn't modify.
The best we can hope to achieve, short of migrating to a completely
different config syntax (grub2), is to warn the user about
inconsistencies, which is indeed what has been done here.
To ultimately resolve this inconsistency on your system, you should
update the groot variable within menu.lst and re-run update-grub.
