[opensuse] Grub2 corrupted after Yast or Zypper updates

When using VirtualBox 4.3.x and running opensuse 12.3 or 13.1 guest,At
random after updates are applied via yast or zypper, somehow the grub
boot loader, get's corrupted.

At this point the vbox guest opensuse vm will not boot, instead all
one see's is a black screen, with the words grub in approximately the
upper left part of screen and nothing else displays.

The vm is recoverable, I just boot the vm using super grub2, then
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg then grub2-install /dev/sda,
reboot all is good.

Any ideas as to what would be causing this and/or prevent it from happening.

Thanks in advance
