I should also add that this is a fault in the new startupmanager. I
removed several older kernel images (-17 etc), and although it had been
set to default to 'Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sda1' (for my wife's
convience as she's trying to figure out Win7 for her work), as soon as I
ran 'sudo update-grub' & rebooted, the default was set to
vmlinuz-2.6.31-19-generic. I had to run startupmanager again to reset to

I figure it will take a few months/revs to get all of this sorted out;
grub2 may be the next gen... but IMO it's a PITA compared to grub.
