Follow-up Comment #1, bug #13079 (project grub):

I ran into the same problem today when moving around my root filesystem to
another partition. I ended up with a partition table containing 
hda1 windows
hda5 data
hda3 swap
hda2 linux

Setting up grub in the MBR gave me no problems, but when I rebooted it
stopped after the messages "Loading Stage 1.5" and "Grub loading, please

deleting the extended partition, creating a new primary directly after hda1
and moving my linux root filesystem there the trouble went away.

It has been pointed out to me that having primary partitions located after an
extended one might not be a valid partition scheme. I don't know about that,
but some kind of test and warning would be nice if that is really the fact.
