(root)/grub/trunk/grub : /grub-core/script/yylex.l (revision 5030) :

"R" and "L" swapped.

Also is reverse of token id usage in parser.y, where R and L
are correct (making '[' and "[[" synonyms, ditto '[' and "]]").

Don't see where they're used - are square brackets gobbled
as lookaheads somewhere? The package I'm using seems to work
for "if [ ...".
