BINGO!  Only one time did the word 'title' appear in his grub.conf.

So I looked at the LAST not FIRST 'kernel' line after 'title' and noted
that the 'kernel' info there matched what actually booted.

I surmise that grub reads the title-to-title section top-to-bottom
discarding any earlier 'kernel' line if it hits a subsequent 'kernel'
