Is this normal on the first update after a 'Update' between versions?

Inability to boot after install is rather common in recent distros' recent
versions. It seems worse with RAID. I created two new RAID1 systems recently,
resulting in filing https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=463033 .

Both of those systems have no problem booting, because I first fully
partitioned prior to beginning installations, and put Grub on the first disk
partitions non-RAID, and do not mount the real boot partition on any
installed system's /boot. I maintain menu.lst on that partition manually.
http://fm.no-ip.com/tmp/Linux/f965-02.txt is the partitioning I used on both
(made prior to completion of the first install). I installed 11.0 from the
boxed DVD on both. On one I also installed 11.1 from HTTP. The other is
waiting till my 11.1 DVD box shows up. I use labels on all partitions, mount
all important partitions by LABEL, and use root=LABEL= in Grub.
