Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

During a manual partitioning attempt on Dove, I triggered a partitioning is too small error on a 160GiB drive, with a 254 MiB boot, and a 158640 MiB root partition. If two partitions are accidently assigned the same mount point, and one is smaller than the minimum size for that partition, it shows the partition is too small error before showing that two partitions are sharing a mount point.

removed armel tag since this appears to be arch unspecific

This does not seem to be a bug since the partition *is* too small.
