Default Believe GRUB or your lying eyes?

Does GRUB "Error 15: File not found." ever mean anything other than it can't
find the file?

On my laptop with Kunbuntu 10.10, the GRUB menu.list shows

title Ubuntu 10.10, kernel 2.6.35-24-generic on sda6
uuid fe69ca55-d3a8-4b6d-bd2d-2cf858629e1b
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.35-24-generic root=UUID=fe69ca55-d3a8-4b6d-
bd2d-2cf858629e1b ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.35-24-generic
quiet

and

title Ubuntu 10.10, kernel 2.6.32-27-generic on sda6
uuid fe69ca55-d3a8-4b6d-bd2d-2cf858629e1b
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-27-generic root=UUID=fe69ca55-d3a8-4b6d-
bd2d-2cf858629e1b ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-27-generic
quiet

When I select the first one I get "Error 15: File not found."

When I select the second, it boots.

I don't have any trouble find ing it:

Why can't GRUB?

"There's no mystery about why the U.S. Supreme Court threw the Ten
Commandments out of the courthouse. You can't engrave 'thou shalt not steal'
or even 'thou shalt not commit adultery' and certainly not 'thou shalt not
lie' on the walls inside a building full of lawyers, judges
and politicians without creating a hostile work environment." --Wesley Pruden
