Thanks Thierry,

I'm using Jeremy Katz's grub-0.91-0.20020102 rpm, and your patch did not
apply to that. If I understand you correctly, it's just a matter of waiting a
couple of weeks, and I cab run your script with the mainstream grub ?
If that's the case, I'll just wait.
My method may be ugly, but it works.
