I think this is a false alarm. When I tried again with the previous iso
file, that worked yesterday, if failed too. So I used mkusb and wiped
the first megabyte and created a fresh gpt system with a bios_grub
partition and an EFI partition.
Then I tried again, and it works with yesterday's and today's daily live
iso file. But I noticed that the bios_grub flag was missing after
installing with yesterday's iso file, so I restored it (with gparted). I
don't know if it was a temporary glitch or a failing drive, or if it was
a bug in yesterday's iso file, that removed the bios_grub flag and made
the drive unavailable for today's iso file.
Anyway, today's iso file *can* install grub into the same drive (a
Kingston SSD), and it does not remove the bios_grub flag. I tried twice,
and it works.

During iso-testing, from the previous daily live iso file to this one,
grub failed to be installed. I tried manual partitioning alias
'Something else' and tried to install to the same partition in the same
target drive as yesterday.
