[Lucid] Kubuntu 64 manual partitioning opens "edit partiton" on first click (annoying)

Bug Description

Installing Kubuntu 64 to a VM using manual partitioning. This is ubiquity 2.2.7.

Expected Results:
Clicking on an existing partition in partman highlights that partition
Clicking on an already highlighted partition opens the partition editor
Double-Clicking on a NON-highlighted partition opens the partition editor

Observed Results:
Single click on any existing partition opens the partition editor.

This is a big annoyance. In this scenario, I have an existing os and want to remove it completely, and install Kubuntu 64bit. I also want to do manual partitioning since I want a separate home directory.

So, I choose manual partitioning and partman loads.

The first thing I want to do is delete my old root partition. I click ONE TIME on that partition. Partition editor opens. I have to now close partition editor so I can click the Delete button to delete the old root partition.

Next, I want to delete my old swap partition. I click ONE TIME on that partition. Partition editor opens. I have to now close partition editor so I can click Delete.

This happens every time and makes manual partitioning a bit of a hassle. The editor should only open up if I A: double click any partition, B: single click one that's already highlighted, or C: Click the Edit button after highlighting a partition with a single click.
