[gutsy tribe-5] Failed to unmount partitions

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

I was installing from Gutsy tribe-5 desktop CD on a computer with Windows XP installed. I didn't select anything in the migration assistant window. During the installation, the attached error message window popped up. I clicked the "Continue..." button, and the installation process went on flawlessly.

I got the same thing. Here is my report:

Not a serious problem, but may be annoying.

Towards end of installation, I got a warning dialog saying:
migration-assistant needs to mount a partition, but cannot do so because
the following mount point could not be unmounted:


Please close any applications using these mount points.

Would you like migration-assistant to try to unmount these partitions

At that point, on terminal-shell I did:
  # mount
that gave the following output.

proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
tmpfs on /lib/modules/2.6.22-12-generic/volatile type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)

/dev/sda1 on /mnt/migrationassistant type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime,allow_other,default_permissions,blksize=4096)

I believe it was while trying to get user-data from Windoz-partition.
