I am rethinking this.

Or, if you like, I have put 2 and 2 together, and come up with 4 (or is it 5).

If you look at bug 820542, you will see a similar problem. Namely, grub.cfg
was not properly updated because of an error that occurred while reinstalling
grub.

That happened at least twice. However, it was fine with the most recent
Tumbleweed kernel update.

My current guess is that there was a kernel bug in communicating with the UEFI
firmware that caused the failure with 13.1 and with some Tumbleweed kernel
updates. And the bug is fixed in the latest Tumbleweed kernel.

Regrettably, I don't have those old kernels to retest, and I think they are
gone from the Tumbleweed repo. I don't have them, because my 13.1 install
reused the same partition.

My suggestion - don't spent too much time looking at this. Perhaps a newer
kernel version in 13.1M2 will already fix it.
