Bug Description

One way I test milestones is to do a fresh install overwriting the previous cumulative version on a 16GB SDHC card. I boot from the USB-attached CDROM, go directly to install, choose the card as the installable device, and reinstall overwriting the entire card (which has a single ext3 partition, no swap).

This time I crashed as soon as I clicked Install after checking boxes on the Peparing window.. The only other HD is the built-in 16GB with WinXP.

System is an ASUS eeePC900, 2GB RAM, Celeron 900.

/var/log/* attached from point of appearance of "ubi-partman crashed" alert
