Bug Description

To reproduce install the 0417.1 lubuntu desktop amd 64 iso on the desktop. select English at the install menu. Select install lubuntu. at the menu and be connected by wired internet. Then wait for the isntaller to load select something else from the installer.

  Installed: 0.5.2-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 0.5.2-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 0.5.2-0ubuntu1 0
        500 vivid/universe amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
  Installed: 0.5.2-0ubuntu1

I expected the desktop installer to have window decoartion and window managment so if for example I click on the release notes and opened a web browswer I could click the close button and close the window.

Instead there were not window decorations so new users wouldn't have an obvious way to close the release notes for example. The installer still seems to be working however when selecting somethings else.

Attaching syslog in case is something else with the installer.

You can go through the install process with window decorations through the live system? Bizarre!
