unable to create xfs filesystem

Bug Description

While installing Elementary OS Luna daily build 20121212 I was trying to create separate partitions for root and for /home. I selected ext4 for the first one and the xfs for the second one. Tried a few times but every time I told the installer to write changes to disk (the 'Install' button) it would just say something like "Unable to create xfs filesystem on... ". Finally selecting ext4 for both partitions made me able to install the system.
Might be device specific but it's not up to me to decide.
