device.map must not contain a final newline

There is an bug in grub-0.5.96 :

If the device.map file contains a final Newline 
(which I am used to since other problems rely on this) 
and therefore contains a line with a single newline. This
line is considered to be a valid entry. The grub-install 
script does not recognize this error though grub complains 
about a missing open parenthesis. I guess the error return 
code somehow is ignored by grub-install.

The error leads to this behaviour:
  "GRUB" is printed as boot message but then it just cannot 
  proceed to (what I think is stage2)
