This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 1.12.2

ubiquity (1.12.2) jaunty; urgency=low

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Add a comment to partman/commit.d/01unmount_busy to explain why this
    script is still here despite similar code in partman-base.
  * Using "Yes" and "No" buttons for the weak-password question turns out to
    be more confusing than I'd hoped. Instead, use "Continue" and "Choose
    another password" (breaking the string freeze, but at least for only one
  * Suppress unnecessary exception if find_in_os_prober fails.
  * GTK frontend:
    - Don't bother calling find_in_os_prober for partitions without real
      devices (e.g. free space).
    - Fix spacing on timezone page (LP: #336745).
  * Fix handling of "yes" response to partman/unmount_active.
  * Display a warning on the advanced partitioning screen if the
    installation medium is mounted but not filling the whole disk, so that
    the disk containing it is still offered for partitioning (LP: #347916).
  * On armel, DEB_HOST_ARCH=armel but DEB_HOST_ARCH_CPU=arm. Check
  * Use the full size of the underlying images for the timezone map if the
    screen is big enough.
  * Install chroot-setup.sh and in-target from debian-installer-utils
    (LP: #353941).
  * Move bootloader dependencies to recommendations, to make it easier to
    cope with grub and grub-pc conflicting (LP: #353273).
  * Automatic update of included source packages: partman-auto 84ubuntu2,
    partman-base 129ubuntu5, partman-ext3 56ubuntu1, user-setup

  [ Mario Limonciello ]
  * Make sure mythbuntu installs have users installed into the 'video'
    group. (LP: #351773)
