I've personally done a bit of testing of GRUB in -current.  While I can't 
say what about e2fsprogs-1.40.8 broke GRUB, I can say that adding that 256 
inode patch back in let GRUB boot my ext3 root partition without problems. 
If you're having trouble with it, might want to give that a look.  It's 
simply commented out of the SlackBuild script at the moment.

It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise,
Than for a man to hear the song of fools.
