Make sure it is HFS and not HFS+.  HFS+ is just like XFS on my todo
list.  If it is important please tell me, as for now no one *needed*
it yet.

Right, so an unknown filesystem can make it crash.  Perhaps it is
caused by a faulty probe of some other filesystem module.  Which
filesystem modules were loaded?

I will have a look.

Ok.  I will try GRUB Legacy.  I think GRUB 2 and GRUB Legacy should
work the same for tab completion.
