Follow-up Comment #8, bug #31425 (project grub):

OK, so did a grub-update with distro version and that did as expected leaving
the /boot in place. Then did:
cd /opt/grub ; make install ; grub-install -v
grub-install (GRUB) 1.99~beta0

Next did:
grub-install /dev/sda; grub-install /dev/sdb; grub-install /dev/sdc
Installation finished. No error reported.
Installation finished. No error reported.

update-grub -v
grub-mkconfig (GRUB) 1.99~beta0
Generating grub.cfg ...
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-amd64
Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-5-amd64
Found Microsoft Windows XP Professional on /dev/sdb1
I had a quick look at the /boot/grub/grub.cfg file and the /boot prefixes are
gone, so was hopeful and rebooted...

All rebooted ok but the screen corrupts and gdm3 fails to load, might have
something to do with these lines??
        set gfxpayload=keep

So have 
cd /opt/grub
make uninstalled
grub-install /dev/sda; grub-install /dev/sdb; grub-install /dev/sdc
and manually edited the updated grub.cfg file to remove the /boot prefixes

Upshot is I can confirm that 1.99~beta0 does indeed not put the /boot prefix
into the grub.cfg after a grub-update

Why the graphics fails I don't know. Hope this helpful. Have attached the two
grub.cfg files and photo of messed up video.
