There's a working grub package linked in the comments, please try.
I am not suffering from that, as I am still using grub 2.00-1. It works fine for kernel 3.8.x but it doesn't work for 3.9.x. This is a different bug.
That bug concerns grub 2.00-1 according to the report. (But it is odd if it works for 3.8.x.)
Sorry! I completely misread the bug report. If I want to try the version of grub that is linked in the comments, do I just have to do "makepkg -si"? If something goes wrong after that: can I just chroot and downgrade to the version in my "vars/cache/pacman/pkg"?
I think you should just update as I am pretty sure whatever is in the linked package is now in the stable repo. My grub is at 2.00.5043-2 and is from stable. I think this is the version mentioned as including the fix.
