Bug Description

Binary package hint: reportbug

You have a 3 partitions on your system :
/dev/sda1(swap)->2G
/dev/sda2(/) -> 17G
/dev/sda3(/home)-> 100G

On instalation process step 4 by 7 (manual partition edit), you click on /dev/sda2 to assign to root partition and its OK, no error here.
But when you click on /dev/sda3 to assign to /home, check partition size, its the same last partition editing 17000M.
If you agree, you will lost your partition forever, because resize will make changes and create a new one.
To resolv you need to repeat the number showed in the GRID and dont trust in numbers showed in form.

I used DVD version of Feisty (final version) and do not test CD version.
Please check at all, its SERIOUS PROBLEM.
