Is this with the actual dvd or the image of the 1st DVD on a usb-stick?

In this case a tautology.

I assume once everything was installed and rebooted there was an upgrade

*ERROR* - All is from DVD - I have MINIMAL available band width ;/

to the latest Jessie which I am pretty sure incorporated a new version
of grub-xxx and updates the grub.cfg based on the current state of that
boot.  During the installation it asks you to select and confirm where
you want grub installed, but when it is upgraded as a package it bases
its installation on previous options, except it reviews that the
installed systems on partitions are actually there.

Does any of this justify a bug report. Especially as I do not
have the bandwidth to do a netinstall of a pre-release version?

If your bug reporting is functional, go ahead it is FREE!  :)

You err.
A spurious bug report may cost me nothing.
*HOWEVER* it costs OTHERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am saying this because it only works with the appropriate network/mail
setup that Debian dictates.
