Yes, and update-grub is also run for grub2, generating a (hopefuly) sane
grub.cfg.  This is the normal behaviour and works for most users of the Debian

As for the Ubuntu forked version, I don't really know. Sometimes they add their
own changes, but never tell me about them.  Occasionaly they pick a version of
the package that is broken and put that in release (IIRC this happened in edgy).

No offence intended but, overall, this is why I ask him to test the official
debian package first.
