Of course I had already installed it under grub.
Thus I can try as many variants as I like.
When I sent off the bug report I cut and pasted the lines from my notes,
which themselves had been cut and pasted from the grub menu.
Anyway anything but that which I described seemed to give a parse error.

The problem is that people try to type those lines in directly
instead of copying it into a file. Of course we should get a good
installer which does the things automatically for those people.
