Follow-up Comment #1, bug #30143 (project grub):

The same thing happened to me once (reboot on set root=(loop)) when I was
testing this feature of grml 2010.04. I couldn't reproduce it though, so I
thought that it was just a fluke (until seeing this report).

I just tried again, and was able to successfully boot:

The one time I was hit by this I was testing with qemu, so I don't think that
the bug is hardware specific. Could you create a bootable grub rescue image
with "grub-mkrescue --output=rescue.iso" and attach it to this bug report?
Hopefully the problem will be reproducible with this image.

(If you compress the image with xz it should just barely make it under the
attachment size limit)
