Felix, I think that it is time to stop this shit. I know, as others know 
by now, that your love - and you won't move from it because you are 
stuck in a time warp - is grub legacy, and that you don't want anything 
to do with grub2. That is fine with me - I have no hassles with this. As 
I mentioned to you a while back, "Whatever turns you on" (or was that 
"Whatever makes you happy"?).

You have taken what I wrote out of context and then go to pontificate 
about it.

If you read in toto what I wrote then what I wrote is perfectly correct.

If you want to nitpick then do it on your own time.

However, what you DID write above is correct - if what I wrote was 
dealing with another situation.
