No, it was not.

No, because the upgrade deleted it, it was there before the upgrade.

Good point, except for the fact that it's totally wrong.  Do you 
honestly think I'd bitch and moan if it was something I did?  I've 
upgraded a dozen machines to F7 now and in 9 of the 12 or 13, grub has 
failed to update properly.  Oh, it setup the F7 kernel entry, but didn't 
set it as the default boot kernel.  That is a bug.  Plain and simple. 
Now /why/ it's a problem on some and not on others, I do not know.  If I 
did I'd be posting the answer.
