I'm experiencing also problems using it, but it's not segfaulting. Using a svn2130 build grub-mkdevicemap --no-floppy create a with proper content like this:
(hd0) /dev/sda
But a svn2137 build (exactly the same BandiPat uses) creates this content, which might not be wrong, but at least the most important part my HDD is missing:
(fd0) (null)

Probably this problem was introduced by revision 2133 and obviously wasn't fixed in rev 2134 - 2137 and in 2138 - 2140 I can see nothing which might fix this.

It would be great if somebody could have a look what could cause this problem. Maybe davem as the author of that revision. If you need any additional information give me a yell and I'll try my best to provide it.

Decided to start a new topic more fitting to this problem. Sorry for what looks like a double posting.

I just tested on one machine, running grub-mkdevicemap -v from the shell, which resulted in a segfault and blank file in /boot/grub!

Looks like some bug was introduced after svn2130 in the file.

Thanks devs for your attention to this one.
