kern/partition.c:117: pc_partition_map detection succeeded.

Just after the snippet you wrote.
So I think it should work.
Maybe you didn't test this right?
Wipe a disk, then make an apple partition, and then make msdos
partitions and make a filesystem on it.
Just like it probable was as you reported the bug initially.

Btw. I just read the whole story again and I was wrong saying that
grub-legacy won't have a fix for this.
grub-legacy now uses grub-probe so if grub-probe works then both are
fixed for you.
