Ah, thanks for the lead.  I forgot to mention versions: Grub2 on
Ubuntu server 11.04.  I found a similar 'GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_RECOVERY'
setting but it appears to only disable the menu item.  There's talk of
a fallback mode but the linked page is in German and I wasn't able to
grok the google-translated page and its bash script.
