I was able to workaround this issue by dropping the test for scriptness
of grub[2]-mkrescue:

   my $opt = '';
   open(A, $mkr) && do {
-    $opt = " -as mkisofs" if <A> =~ /^#! +\/.+sh/;
+    $opt = " -as mkisofs";
     close A;
   };
   my $cmd = "$mkr --output=\"$isofilename\" $dir ".

The test seems to draw wrong conclusions at least on Fedora 25. The fix
works fine also on Ubuntu 16.04, besides Fedora.

The concern here would be if "-follow default" has the same semantics as
"-as mkisofs -f". It would be also useful to know what system are you
running this on.

Best,
