Issue with grub2-mkconfig

I've noticed an issue with at least Fedora 16's grub2-mkconfig.

I have systems that have an XP partition on /dev/sda1 and have 
noticed two issues.

1. After running grub2-mkconfig once, it works fine, and creates 
the grub.cfg correct, but if one runs it again, it fails to find the 
2. After running grub2-mkconfig once, the windows partition can 
not be mounted as it says it is busy, but is not mounted?

In both cases restarting the machine fixes the problem, so I am 
guessing that something in the probe process is mounting the 
partition in some way, and then not fully releasing it. 

Not sure if these has always been like this, or this is new. I 
generally would have the machines reboot after doing an update, 
but recently did not, and saw this?
