I haven't seen MBR issues, but I have seen /boot issues.  My suggestion
would be that each OS installation mounts their own /boot partition
as /boot, and none mount a separate grub boot partition used to decide
which OS boot to chainload.  That way updates should only affect
themselves.

MBR shouldn't be touched unless you're installing GRUB.  Updating a
kernel doesn't need to change anything in the MBR, but does need to
modify that installation's own grub.conf (or menu.lst) file.
