 Well, I've now worked around it - it ain't pretty, but bootloaders
never are.

1. Booting the wrong system was a pebkac.

2. From somewhere, the prefix is set to (hd0,15)/boot/grub.  I've no
idea where this is set, and trying to set it at the start of grub.cfg
didn't work.  So, I've created that path for it -

mkdir /boot/boot
ln -s ../grub /boot/boot/grub

 Since I'm expecting to manually edit grub.cfg in future, and for me
there is no benefit in "security by obscurity" for its contents, I've
changed that file to mode 644.

After tragedy, and farce, "OMG poneys!"
