What happens... symptoms please?

I have my daughters ACER laptop dual booting between wishta and opensuse
10.3/ I had an interesting problem that I've never encountered... the
first few times that wishta started it gave me a black screen and fatal
startup errors... like it could tell that something was very wrong with the
MBR and wasn't happy about it. On about the fourth bootup wishta began
working "as normally as you might expect it too... it sucks..." and the
dual boot has worked since---very strange behavior. I am wondering if
they have finally rigged W7 so that dual boot will be a royal pain./
(sour grapes
stuff?) ... just guessing of course. I don't plan running W7... and
wouldn't even have wishta if it hadn't come preloaded on my daughter's
ACER... we will probably drop it... it can't really do anything and I'm not
about to buy any windows software!

The issue is actually solved.
Windows 7 repaired boot sector without wiping out GRUB in MBR.
I looked in bugzilla, there is no bug report from Dave, but there are another
