I don't remember how many bytes precisely, but you are right.

Anyway, this is an implementation detail, and those who failed in saving a 
default entry apprently didn't use grub-install for the installation. This 
dirty work is done automatically by grub-install. If you encounter this 
problem when you install GRUB bundled with a distribution, you should 
complain to the distributor that they don't use grub-install correctly.
