Insists on formatting /boot partition containing existing kernel images

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Gutsy 32-bit LiveCD Beta (20070925.2) Install.

Choosing manual partitioning and assigning /boot /home and swap to pre-existing (Feisty-created) partitions, the installer refuses to proceed unless /boot is formatted.

This is clearly impossible since it would wipe out the Feisty kernels.

The disk layout is:

#1 /boot
#2 / (Feisty)
#3 swap
#5 / (Testing - Gutsy)
#6 /home
