Does any of this justify a bug report.

No. The only bug is that the system installed on the SD card boots while it
should not.

Why shouldn't the system boot? It has the same kernel that is on the
hard disk, And the GRUB versions are the same. Does it matter where the
booted kernel resides?

Ok. The OP was lucky. Another arrangement between the booted OS and GRUB
on the hard disk would possibly have led to a loss of sale for the store.
Never using anything but Jessie installs (which is what the OP does) is
a disadvantage when GRUB is involved.


Not quite correct.
I performed what *I* considered a *WORST CASE TEST*.
It passed.
My *minimal* criterion was the ability to read *AND* write the device.
