Description Jeff Guerdat 2011-12-07 12:50:46 EST
Description of problem:

A kernel update still strips out spaces in the set default= line.  Should be set default="Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda2)" but ends up with set default="Windows7(loader)(on /dev/sda2)".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always on kernel update

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install new kernel
2. check grub2.cfg
Actual results:
First 3 spaces are stripped out

Expected results:
spaces should be maintained

Additional info:
Ever since a fresh load of F16 with a Windows 7 installation a kernel update will not correctly update grub2.cfg to use the W7 install as default.  I've slowly learned to manually set the default via commandline and to edit /etc/default/grub to used the saved configuration but a kernel update still strips out spaces in the default= line.  Not sure why there's no tool to easily set the default correctly - needed to use Ubuntu support forums to discern what was needed.  Again, it should be:
set default="Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda2)" 
but ends up with:
set default="Windows7(loader)(on /dev/sda2)".

On a side (related?) note, anaconda for the fresh install never even considered asking which OS to set as default.
