RE:After updates, won't boot past the word "grub" with F9

I had the same problem on an Apr 26 update with both of my i386 rawhide systems, which I also resolved with a rescue disk boot and grub reinstall. This seems like a pretty scary bug just pre-release, though I also don't know exactly what to blame.

Initially I thought it was something quirky on one of the systems (which has two hard drives, which seem to have swapped between sda and sdb with the upgrade to F9, which I thought might have confused grub), but then it happened on my other system as well, which has a much more straightforward configuration.

The yum log from one of the offending updates is below: the only obvious culprit I see is the kernel upgrade -- is there any way that could mess up grub? Clearly it touches grub.conf but that seemed fine.
