Winfrid,
I asked about this problem several colleagues and the result is that our GRUB
doesn't support boot from GPT partition > 3.

Sorry I skip technical details because I don't feel be expert for it.

I don't know about migrating to GRUB2 for openSUSE 11.3. (probably not)

It means I am closing bug like wontfix. I am not against updating of
yast2-bootloader but support boot from GPT partition > 3 should be added to
different tools and packages out of my responsibility and I don't feel that
there is enough resources and will.
