I've heard of this happening to other people, too, but I can't
reproduce it myself (although admittedly my ability to do so is
somewhat limited because my "scratch" machine won't boot recent
release kernels because of the inclusion of the AGP driver).

Do you perhaps have a /boot.config file that is overriding the
invocation of the loader?
