                 Summary: savedefault immediatly followed by halt fails
                 Project: GNU GRUB

                Severity: Major
                Priority: 5 - Normal

             Open/Closed: Open
                 Release: 0.95
         Reproducibility: None
         Planned Release: 



grub.conf with the following setup does not update /boot/grub/default with
line 5 commented out:

1  default save

2  title PowerSafe

3  root (hd0,0)

4  safedefault NUM

5  # cat /boot/grub/default

6  halt

7  ...

after enabeling line 5, /boot/grub/default gets updated accordingly.

Suspect: disk cache gets not flashed, if safedefault command is immedately
followed by halt.

This scenario is not as useless as it might look like, see
