Bug Description

After a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04 and doing a manual partitioning with btrfs as my root and /home on a separate, but also btrfs, partition, immediately after the boot loader passes, I get a purple screen with the words "error: sparse file not allowed, press any key to continue". Booting resumes shortly afterwards.
