ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

to reproduce on a disk create two larger xfs partitions that has a / partion and a seperate /home partition. Then install linux like lubuntu trusty .2 in a ext4 partiton. Then launch the installer again and try to autoresize will show the about 52 giagbytes of the ext4 partiton to be resized and say three smaller partitions are hidden when it is hiding 2 100 GB xfs images I also have 4 GB of swap.

Description: Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS
Release: 14.04

I expected ubiquity to not make the false claim that the two 100 xfs partitions were smaller than the 52 GB partion And havae the string say unresizeable instead of just smaller which is not the case with these partions.
