grub tools and Windows UAC

If UAC is enabled, running grub-install (and probably others too - did
not try) will request privilege elevation; but then process is
re-launched in separate window and disappears after it is finished.
This makes even reading help impossible.

May be grub should check for privilege elevation status and refuse to
run if it is not sufficient.
