Thank you for replying.

Of course, it is a bug report. The steps to create the image are
very detailed and should be enough to reproduce the bug on a
FreeBSD/amd64 system.

Here's a 362k 7z-compressed image of a 25MB disk
that contains one slice 's1' with a BSD partition 'a' and
a UFS2 filesystem on it:

Don't expect it to boot, because grub-install wasn't able
to complete the task (grub-probe failed as in the long mail).
The file system contains the /boot/grub/* files though: those
were properly installed by grub-install. Just not the MBR.

If I can provide more help, please do ask. :)
