Ubuntu Installer missing graphics
Binary package hint: live-installer
Steps to reproduce:
1. download and install VirtualBox 1.5.4 (Windows or Linux) or Qemu 0.9.1 (Linux)
2. Download kubuntu-
3. Set up a VirtualBox to boot the CD image.
4. When the desktop is ready click the "Install" icon.
5. Go "Next" to step 2 "Where are you?" (select the Time Zone)
6. Observe the missing world map.
I am creating a course to install and use Kubuntu Gutsy (7.10).

I was taking screenshots of the installer on the live CD and noticed that on "Step 2 of 6" ("Where are you?") timezone selection the graphic for the world map didn't render correctly.
You get the dots representing the city location but no actual map of the world.
In fact you get the text from the previous screen showing behind the dots and box.
If you do a "Back"->"Next" it clears the text from the previous screen, but no world map graphic.
Host 1: WinXP SP2, 1.25Gb RAM 120Gb HDD, nVidia GeForceGo? (Dell Inspiron 8600 upgraded)
Host 2: Kubuntu (upgraded to latest), VIA mobo, Athlon 3000XP, 2Gb RAM 250Gb HDD, nVidia 6200 TwinViewed? (prop. driver)
VirtualBox machine with 256Mb RAM, 10Gb disc, CDRom image: kubuntu-
Both machines created from scratch. Both showing same problem
Problem also occurs in Qemu 0.9.1 (cirrus and std-vga drivers)
Tested in VMware 1.0.4 graphic displays correctly.
It seems to be a combination of Kubuntu (KDE edition) and either VirtualBox or Qemu.
Ubuntu (Gnome) seems not to have this issue.
