I've un-duplicated this bug.
Bug 434413 (this one's former duplicate) is about the underlying crash in pywebkitgtk.
I'm hereby declaring this bug to be about the specific instance of the crash in ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu during installation.

This particular instance of the bug is easily fixed by a simple workaround: disable dragging of images in the installer slideshow.

I'm attaching a debdiff to achieve this.

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * The version of Firefox shipped with Ubuntu 9.10 is 3.5, not 3.0
    (LP: #442832).
  * Add an Ubuntu One slide.
  * Freeze exception (LP: #447383).
  * Updated Ubuntu and Ubuntu One logo license (LP: #451263).
  * Updated translations from Launchpad (source package).

  [ Dylan McCall ]
  * Merged middle-tweaks branch. Freeze exception (LP: #445102)
  * New strings for firefox.html, fspot.html, rhythmbox-totem.html,
    evolution.html, empathy.html, openoffice.html, accessibility.html,
  * Changed order of slideshow; multimedia stuff slide appears first,
    accessibility near the end, before Installing Software.
  * Breathe icons have been replaced with icons from the Humanity icon theme:
    accessibility.svg, evolution.svg, fspot.svg, help.svg, openoffice.svg
    (LP: #428169)
  * Breathe icon fspot.svg has been replaced with its counterpart from the
    fspot source package.
  * Removed banshee.svg from source tree and removed mention of nonexistent
    icons from debian/copyright.
  * Updated translation templates for new slides.

  [ Daniel Holbert ]
  * Made images in slideshow non-draggable to work around pywebkitgtk crash
    (LP: #448703).
