GRUB with FreeBSD/UFS2

I am experimenting a bit with using GRUB to boot FreeBSD and having some extremely strange issues.

# newfs /dev/ad1s1a
/dev/ad1s1a: 96.1MB (196772 sectors) block size 16384, fragment size 2048
        using 4 cylinder groups of 24.03MB, 1538 blks, 3136 inodes.
super-block backups (for fsck -b #) at:
 160, 49376, 98592, 147808
# mount /dev/ad1s1a /mnt
# mount
/dev/ad1s1a on /mnt (ufs, local)

so we have a valid/good UFS filesystem here.

grub> geometry (hd1)
drive 0x81: C/H/S = 1017/127/62, The number of sectors = 8013457, /dev/ sdb
   Partition num: 0, [BSD sub-partitions immediately follow]
BSD Partition num: 'a', Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0xa5

grub (GNU GRUB 0.97)

Any ideas what could be causing this?
