I suggested this because many people (including me) have problems with
generated grub2 configs even without zfs. What you're experiencing
could be some grub problem rather than a zfs boot one.

I understand getting in to you grub config to tweak something, but losing entire system functionality if you don't falls pretty far outside that realm.  (That's experimental territory!  I didn't sign on for that!)  I want to spend my time making ZFS do stuff, not spend my time making ZFS.

I've run combination ext3 + jfs systems for years at this point; it doesn't really scare/bother me to have one file system for boot and another for my data!
