Boot Failure When Fedora 12 Grub Installs to non-MBR Partition

I prefer to keep Windows on the MBR. So I install grub to a separate partition. I then allow the Windows Loader to chainload grub (example). I noticed a problem with the Fedora 12 Anaconda Installer. If I chose to install grub to the First sector of boot partition instead of the MBR, I get an un-bootable system. It is easy to see the problem if you compare fdisk output. (I reduced the output for clarity)
