A well know bug: Older releases of GRUB (including our own grub version
on os.inf.tu-dresden.de) have problems when seeking back a file which
comes from tftp.

Bugfix: Upgrade to the latest GRUB release in CVS.

Workaround: Strip your kernel image (rmgr): strip rmgr. When stripping
your image, GRUB doesn't have to seek back the image because there are
no other sections than code and data.
