Change in updates?

I'm running 12.04 LTS.

I noticed that the last three (or more) times I've run an update to the
kernel, instead of adding the new kernel to the boot menu, grub replaces
the old one with the new one.

As this is risky from the standpoint of not having a working kernel on
which to fall back should the new one have major problems, this seems a
little aggressive of grub.

Or is there a setting that controls how many kernsl grub keeps around (and
is that new)?
