Speaking of Grub 2, does anyone know if the grub2 automatic boot-through 
to default bug has been fixed?  I posted it on launchpad 
but apparently no one has had a chance to look at it.

Although not a big deal for desktop installs, this is a serious PITA for 
server environments, particularly for collocated or dedicated server 
pools where the admin doesn't have access to a console.

If you're using 9.10, server, I suggest you use the work around 
described in the bug report.
