Well, the rational is rather simple. grub stage2 has the ability to walk
through the filesystem to look for files and to cat them. So really, the
menu file should be the last thing that makes trouble for grub but since
Gene does a chattr +i I might just try that although I am of the opinion
that +i really just messes up whatever is trying to reinstall grub
during shutdown and so it ends up NOT reinstalling grub.
