This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.12.16

ubiquity (2.12.16) quantal-proposed; urgency=low

  * Change get_grub_choice implementation to use get_current_disk_partman_id
    instead of get_autopartition_choice so it doesn't need to parse strings.
    Implement get_current_disk_partman_id in Kde frontend to use the same code.
