Default Bug#510223: linux-image-2.6.26-1-686: upgrade from etch to lenny fails in postinst

Package: linux-image-2.6.26-1-686
Version: 2.6.26-11
Severity: important

An upgrade of machine with a fairly basic install fails mysteriously:

one:/home/wichert# dpkg --configure linux-image-2.6.26-1-686

running update-grub by hand seems to work fine, so I have no idea what is
happning here.

update-grub is supplied by grub, this looks like #499176.
