Bug Description

This is a duplicate of bug #1386935, but it was reproduced with the 14.04.01 installer, while creating it with the pendrivelinux.com's installer under Windows. The similarity which I can see is that in both cases I was using a live USB stick with the persistence partition.

However, since I don't see at the moment how to file it as such without losing the attached data from Apport, I am going to file it here. Merge them at your convenience, please.
