I have double -- triple -- checked, and I can't find a second grub or
grub.conf anywhere.  I have searched both harddisks.  I do have
a /etc/grub.conf link and a grub2 /boot/efi but I moved both of those
aside by renaming *.BU.  That had no effect, I still get the double grub
flashscreen/menu.

I will in the future.  

Sorry to keep at this, but I am stumped.  I don't want to risk
prematurely re-installing grub without discovering the cause of the
baton passing.  Who knows what I might mess up.  Remember, I did
re-install grub when I did a fresh install of F9 and that solved
nothing.
