Follow-up Comment #3, bug #46700 (project grub):

Purely cosmetic? Are you kidding me? The FS is full of files. 
The machine can't boot.

# fdisk  -l /dev/sda

WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util fdisk
doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.

Note: sector size is 4096 (not 512)

Disk /dev/sda: 1800.4 GB, 1800360124416 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 27360 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 4096 = 65802240 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

# gdisk -l /dev/sda
GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 0.8.10

Partition table scan:
  MBR: protective
  BSD: not present
  APM: not present
  GPT: present

Found valid GPT with protective MBR; using GPT.
Disk /dev/sda: 439541046 sectors, 1.6 TiB
Logical sector size: 4096 bytes
Disk identifier (GUID): 1FFC3352-7D1B-4C8A-B2DC-044530D005EB
Partition table holds up to 128 entries
First usable sector is 6, last usable sector is 439541040
Partitions will be aligned on 256-sector boundaries
Total free space is 1530 sectors (6.0 MiB)

Number  Start (sector)    End (sector)  Size       Code  Name
   1            1536           76799   294.0 MiB   EF00  primary
   2           76800       439541040   1.6 TiB     FD00  Linux RAID

I have now trashed ext2 FS and made it a VFAT to go with UEFI bootloader.
Still, grub is clueless about partition size and FS.

GPT was created with parted and gdisk, I don't remember the steps.

At this point it would be easier to just ship your the drive I guess.
