Lubuntu 19.04 beta - SegFault from manual partitioning when "Create" or "Edit" clicked on with no partition selected

Bug #1823569 reported by Scott Cowles Jacobs on 2019-04-07

calamares (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

 1. Boot Lubuntu
 2. Run the installer (Calamres)
 3. Select manual partitioning
 4. Making sure a partition table exists and that at least one partition exists, click on a partition
 5. Click Edit or Create
 6. Click ok
 7. Noting that no partition is selected but the Edit or Create button is highlighted (blue), click it

Nothing happens since no partition is selected.

Calamares segfaults.

calamares 3.2.4-0ubuntu1
calamares-settings-lubuntu 1:19.04.3
calamares-settings-ubuntu-common 1:19.04.3
partitionmanager 3.3.1-5

Cosmic/calamares 3.2.2-0ubuntu1 does not suffer from this bug.

After I had tested the crash from the terminal, I went back and finished the install.
This I also invoked from the terminal.

In case the terminal output from a successful install would be useful to you, I will now attach it here also.

The output appears to be identical prior to where the SegFault occurs in the other file,
and I have inserted a newline after this point to enhance readability.

Chris, according to the upstream bug, the issue is actually the fact that no selection is made when an action (either edit or create) is selected, so I don't think that bug is related.
