Follow-up Comment #1, bug #17957 (project grub):

I had a similar experience (Toshiba laptop, SuSE 10.0, kernel 2.6.13, Grub
After a large file copy operation, I hibernated my laptop and then attempted
to resume. Grub gave the 'inconsistent filesystem structure'. Booting into
another OS did not help, but booting into my 'Safe Mode' entry did.

I managed to reconstruct the problem, and traced it to the 'savedefault' line
which was present in my main Linux and Windows entries. After editing the main
Linux entry in the grub boot interface and removing the 'savedefault', I
managed to boot just fine (with proper resume-from-hibernation and all file
transactions completed afterwards).

My guess is that the 'savedefault' entry causes grub to try to access the
filestructure of the partition on which the safedefault value is to be saved,
and if that filestructure happens to be inconsistent at that moment, grub does
not continue booting.

Would it be possible, in such cases, to have grub abort the saving of the
'savedefault' value but continue booting, possibly with a warning message and
a 'press return to continue' prompt?
