Description of problem:
The title of first entry is some random string. I updated to new grubby and new kernel. After reboot the newly created entry title is nonsense. Boot works normally if you chose that entry.
In grub.cfg there is 'H<EC>lq;^?'
grub2-mkconfig works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
it happened after update to new version of grubby and new kernel and during installation of F22 Beta RC2 with updates testing.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F22 Beta RC2 with updates testing
First menuentry is some random string
I propose this as a final blocker as it somehow violates this alpha criterion: "Any component which prominently identifies a Fedora release version number, code name or milestone (Alpha, Beta, Final) must do so correctly."
The grub doesn't show correct information about installed system. If there are another systems on the computer the grub doesn't provide efficient information about what the user is booting. Workaround would be to press 'e' and look what that entry boots which is not solution for everyone.

Reproduced easily, happens every time with the new grubby. Always some random characters, different every time (cool feature!).
