Why am I being prompted for a grub user and password each time I boot?

Hello all,

Using Fedora 17. Why would I be prompted for a grub username and password each time I boot? I have been using a kickstart for quite some time and have not seen this before. I went to build a box yesterday and now every time I boot I am prompted by grub for a username and password. The last time I built a box was late last week and this was not a problem. Has anyone else seen this?

Note: I am using all currently updated repositories to build.

Still researching. Looks like it might be a bug in the grub2-2.0-0.37.beta6.fc17.x86_64.rpm. I have rolled back the version in the kickstart build to grub2-2.0-0.25.beta4.fc17.x86_64.rpm and it seems to work ok now.
