Server installer skips manual networking configuration questions

Bug Description

When installing Ubuntu Server 12.04 64bit onto a fresh VMware ESXi virtual instance, and choosing to configure the network manually, after entering the IP address, the setup process skips the routing, subnet, and DNS server information.

I've tried this three times now. It appears that there is a DHCP service running in the background trying to overwrite the settings as I wrote them as the options would flash by but only briefly.
