I guess you prefer the way such situation is handled by other projects:
silently closing of 80%-probability invalid bugreport. With os-prober
installed and after running update-grub both debian sid and ubuntu lucid lynx
detect windows with no problem the only 2 exceptions we've seen so far is
either uncleanly unmounted NTFS partition and distribution not being
sufficiently up-to-date.
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude upgrade
sudo aptitude install os-prober
sudo update-grub
solve most problems.
Your report of Ubuntu not being able to detect windows is moot as the issue
seems to affect only your system. If you want to convince me that I'm wrong at
very least supply the needed information as you partition table (fdisk -ul
<disk>), mount points (mount), log of attempts to mount windows partitions
(mount <disk> <mountpoint>) and grub.cfg file.
