I am no programmer, so I had to wait for this:
Robert Millan closed the bug at Debian bug tracking system:
but I cannot confirm that the bug is gone in Debians current (sid) version: 

The standard-install of the mentioned version links directly to kernel and 
ramdisk, so it works.
But if you change grub.cfg to load kernel and ramdisk via symlink the error 
still exists:

menuentry "Debian GNU/Linux (4.0) (on /dev/hda3)" {
        set root=(hd0,3)
        linux /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda3 ramdisk_size=100000 lang=de apm=power-off 
nomce vga=0x317 quiet noresume splash 
        initrd /initrd.img

results in:
error: you must load the kernel first

typing the commands manually at grub-prompt leads to
error: file not found
after the linux /vmlinuz ... line.

An interesting behavior of the older version (before February 25, 2008) seems 
to be gone:
(I discovered it after you committed your changes so I thought it is useless) 
If you waited for the boot-countdown the symlinks worked as expected 
(system-boot), but
if you selected the same line manually (e.g. by just pressing enter) leads to
error: you must load the kernel first

Please let me know if I can provide additional information.
