Ubiquity not powering off with "ubiquity ubiquity/poweroff boolean true" in preseed file

Bug #1329417 reported by KDEUSER56 on 2014-06-12
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

What I did:

1.) Downloaded official Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop iso
2.) Placed the preseed file in the iso and changed the kernel boot command line to
       "file=/cdrom/preseed/install.seed boot=casper noninteractive noprompt initrd=/casper/initrd.lz quiet splash --"
3.) Let the installer run

What happens: After the installation is finished, the live session is started
What should happen: After the installation is finished, the system should power off.

Poweroff works when I work around the following way:

ubiquity ubiquity/success_command string sudo poweroff;

Note: Poweroff does neither work with

ubiquity ubiquity/poweroff string true

Still true for both trusty and latest utopic. Please have a look at it, despite being a minor issue, it should still be fixed.
