That depends on what argument you give to --target ...

Neither of you mention which version of grub-common you have installed.
However, it sounds like you're both being hit by #550704, and that Jö
may be being hit by #542165 as well. Both are fixed in any version from
1.98+20100614-1 on, so please upgrade to the latest grub-common in
unstable and let me know if that fixes things.
I'll merge this with #550704 for the meantime.
