You can get grub 2.0 Beta3 from or get bzr trunk
by running "bzr branch";.

Please note that when testing bugs and fixes in any project you can't
simply assume that a single file can be updated on its own, or that
you even know which files have the needed changes without
understanding the bug or how it has been fixed. To test the new
version of grub make sure to build it, install it with "make install",
and re-run run grub-install and grub-mkconfig.
