Subject: live-config-sysvinit: Debian reboot directly in the same kernel, does not show GRUB

Hello, this is a bug regarding Debian Live project.
In Debian Live medium, and in an installed Debian from a live medium,
when I reboot the system, it reboots directly to the same kernel,
not showing computer BIOS, neither GRUB, to can boot another different OS or a different kernel.
I mean, it boots automatically the Live system again, or the normal installed
system if it was installed using Live medium (live-installer).
This affects at least, Debian 6.0.2 (stable) images.
In a system installed from Debian 6.0.2 live medium, and upgraded to testing (wheezy), the problem is
still reproducible.

this is a feature called 'kexec'.

if you want to do a coldreboot, use /sbin/coldreboot instead of reboot, 
or, run dpkg-reconfigure -plow kexec-tools and disable kexec.
