Bug Description

I was carrying out this test: http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/219/builds/20576/testcases/1302/results with this iso: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/20120809.1/quantal-desktop-amd64.iso on this hardware: http://wiki.ubuntu-it.org/CarlaSella/lshw.
After selecting English language in the initial screen I went on until the keyboard screen presented me with the English keyboard (as at the beginning I selected English language), but I have an Italian keyboard an so I clicked on "Detect keyboard layout" to try to detect my italian keyboard.
When I was asked to type this key: ç after that Ubiquity crashed.
I had to abort the installation and got brought to live USB key ubuntu desktop (I was installing from a live USB key to my PC).

Also happended on this ISO: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/20120811.1/quantal-desktop-amd64.iso for Ubuntu Desktop amd64 install.

Same problem with http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/20120812.1/quantal-desktop-i386.iso, happened after clicking the Next button in the screen "Where are you?" with location Brussels.

I selected Nederlands at the welcome screen.
