I may have miss-typed, and meant a pinfo grub2 has lots of blank entries. But 
there is not an info file with the grub2 install.  Except there is, but you 
get it with a pinfo grub after having installed grub2.  The following entries 
in that file (fedora F10 grub2 rpm installed) are link-less, empty:

* Configuration::               Writing your own configuration file
* Network::                     Downloading OS images from a network
* Preset Menu::                 Embedding a configuration file into GRUB
* Images::                      GRUB image files
* Troubleshooting::             Error messages produced by GRUB
* Invoking the grub shell::     How to use the grub shell
* Invoking grub-terminfo::      How to generate a terminfo command
* Internals::                   Hacking GRUB

attempting to read any of the above entries gets you a no such file or 
directory advisory at the bottom of the window.  And I think you will have to 
agree that is a lot of missing data.

Particularly when it doesn't Just Work.

Whatever is installed on an otherwise up to date F10 install.
Whatever terminal is std in the F10 KDE4 install.
Platform is AMD phenom x4, ruunning 32 bit F10

No bug, other than the info file just doesn't have the info.

Thanks Michael.
