This bug was fixed in the package partman-target - 58ubuntu6

partman-target (58ubuntu6) jaunty; urgency=low

  * Rather than pretending that partitions have no longer been formatted
    after the partitioner is complete, reset their intended state from
    "format the partition" to "keep and use the existing data". This still
    solves the original problem reported in Debian bug #256090 while also
    stopping partitions from being needlessly reformatted if you go back to
    the partitioner after base system installation and then forward again
    (LP: #29712).
  * Don't clear partitions or complain about them not being formatted if
    they've already been formatted by a previous partitioner run.
  * Introduce partman/mount_style (choices: traditional, label, uuid) to
    allow controlling how filesystems are mounted. Default this to uuid, and
    stop using labels by default since they have unavoidable problems with
    removable disks (LP: #347817).
