Failed to create a file system

Bug Description

After selecting "Erase Disk and install Ubuntu" and clicking "Continue", Ubiquity throws the following error:

Failed to create a file system
The ext4 file system creation in partition #1 of SCSI1 (0,0,0) (sda) failed.

Parallel to this, I get a message informing that a volume is mounted automatically (see #719338, most probably related).

Clicking "OK" to the warning, and confirming that I want to unmount "partitions in use", I can't still continue with installing.

This is with 20120905.1 in VirtualBox.
