This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.11.18

ubiquity (2.11.18) quantal; urgency=low

  * Don't bother keeping track of keyboard model names and identifiers, as
    nothing in ubiquity uses them right now.
  * Fix reversed uses of methods mapping between keyboard layout/variant IDs
    and human-readable names, and improve method naming and documentation to
    make this mistake less likely in future (LP: #1027207, #1027620).
  * Automatic update of included source packages: debian-installer-utils
    1.91ubuntu3, flash-kernel 3.0~rc.4ubuntu9, netcfg 1.68ubuntu15.
