when editing a partition, the dialog should start with the existing size

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

selecting "manual partitioning" from ubiquity, then editing the partition: usually you only want to select the partition and change the mount point. however when the edit dialog opens, the partition size is not set to the current value. just changing the mount point requires to manually set the partition size to the current size.

It's supposed to be set to the current size. Could you please attach /var/log/syslog and /var/log/partman to this bug, following the directions in http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingUbiquity/AttachingLogs? Thanks in advance.

- I have /dev/sda1, 197MB, /dev/sda3, 10GB
- Edit sda1 (correctly shows 197MB), cancel
- Edit sda3, still shows 197MB, you have to increase
  this manually to 10GB again.

I can confirm this problem in Feisty release.

It's even worse, I cannot manually change the size back to its original value.

I could see this behaviour on my system during the installation of Intrepid daily live image 20080813.3 (amd64).

Kind regards,

With current daily-live image, this seems to be gone.

Kind regards,

It sounds like this was fixed back in Intrepid.
