Bug Description

1. Boot ubuntu-14.04-desktop-amd64.iso in a Virtual Box VM using UEFI.
2. Installation type: something else
3. click New Partition Table button
4. click free space then + button, set Size 200MB, set Use as to EFI boot partition, click OK.

Result: In the top portion of the UI, sda1 is reported as having file system (ext4).

Expected: The file system for EFI System partitions is most correctly described as being the EFI file system, but could also be described as FAT, or FAT16/FAT32. In any case it's not ext4.

I think this has since been corrected; at least here it looks like it's properly reporting fat32, could you confirm?

Hmm, scratch that, it *is* still broken.
