Hi Jordan,

I'll create the bug reports this weekend. I think i even need to create two:
1) For the issue with a one-disk-RAID array
2) grub2-probe still "double free"'s when i point it to a real partition which 
is part of a raid array, this did no go away when i made the disks really 

Do you agree with that ?

Best regards,

Ps: Sorry for top posting and the ugly quoting, i was forced to switch to a new 
web interface and it seems it simply doesn't do any quoting ...

 1-disk arrays, and since it scan every block device the
 half-build raid device for / still caused the trouble.

 I'm glad you were able to get things working, but
 grub-install should
 still handle this better (especially when it's not even
 /boot/ that's
 causing the issue). Would you please file a bug report at
 with steps to
 reproduce (basically just how to create a one device RAID1)
 so that
 this can hopefully get fixed?
