Thanks for the reply.  I am not sure why but I experienced following
after the first send-pr.  I also cannot reproduce the xen.gz issue on
another machine that can read .gz file correctly whenever.  :(

  1. grub-nb6 command doesn't recognize both xen.gz and xen (ungzipped).
  2. actual grub-nb6 boot loader CAN recognize xen but not xen.gz.
  3. grub-nb5 boot loader recognize xen but not xen.gz
  4. grub-nb5 boot loader on ANOTHER MACHINE recognize both xen.gz and xen.
     I guess grub-nb6 boot loader will recognize both too on this machine.

I used following programs.

  - grub-nb5
  - grub-nb6
  - xenkernel30-3.0.3
  - xentools30-3.0.3

Are there any other packages related to this issue?
