ixfd64, I think your answer is completely correct. Even if the grandfather talks in his sleep, it is highly unlikely that he reports his dream in such detail. Was did he say while sleeping?

- "Oh no, a mob is outside my chateau."
- "I'm tied up."
- "No, not the guillotine on the market square."
- "Up the stairs? No, I don't want to!"
- "No priest, please!"
- "No, not in the cradle!"

And so on...

On a side note:
Assuming the contents of the dream is known (due to talking while sleeping) to another person, most likely the grandmother, then a pinch in the neck would be a very harsh way of snoring punishment, IMHO. However, I don't know how they treated each other, so this wouldn't be convincing answer.
