Yes, looks like it. It needs some adjustment. Care to open bug report

What do you mean "works"? It shows last error, so you simply do not
see errors about preceding "if" or "configfile" commands. Actually, I
have somewhere patch to make it more verbose at this point ...

As I just suggested in another thread - create standalone image using
grub-mkstandalone. It puts full grub in memory disk and you can add
grub.cfg on top of it. This grub.cfg runs after normal.mod is loaded
from memory disk so full functionality is available.
