I guess all of us who run into this bug use a setup with two grubs where the
first one (in a primary partition) chainloads the second one (in a logical
partition). I'm still not sure why I have to be carefull when I create my
partition setup. Can you please clarify this?

Also I'm not sure what the fix below in yast2-bootloader has to do with this
issue we see here because I've no vista code in my MBR (because no Vista is
installed).
- added fix for proposal if MBR include Vista code and "/" is on
logical partition (bnc #450137)

Sorry for the questions, but I would like to get the point where I made
something wrong. I only expect that YaST installs grub into the partition I
selected.
