KDE frontend hangs on timezone page unless mouse is moved

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

If you run the KDE frontend to the timezone page, then hit next and do not move the mouse, the installer will hang on that page. Moving the mouse causes the time on the timezone map to update and the installer to change steps. This may be related to recent changes to the ubiquity kde event loop code.

I'm not convinced this is only on the timezone page. It doen't affect me when running in English language, only in non-English.

I'm having the same problem when passing from "keyboard layout" wizard to "Disk Setup". The installer hangs when "Scanning disks" indicator reaches 47 %

piedramania: If you move the mouse, does progress continue normally? If not, it's likely a different issue you're experiencing... in that case, could you please open a separate bug with any additional related info you have (or look for an existing one specifically related to disk scanning getting stuck)? Thanks!

No, progress does not continue ever. Now I think it's related to ksoftirqd.
I'll check other bugs. Thanks

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.2.17

ubiquity (2.2.17) lucid; urgency=low

  [ Mario Limonciello ]
  * Remove unused install_bottom_eb from GTK frontend's install_window.

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Catch invalid iterators in on_region_combo_changed (LP: #521851).
  * Don't let not being able to talk to the system bus crash the entire
    language page.
  * Translate the yes and no buttons on the quit dialog in the KDE
    frontend (LP: #561876).
  * Update translations from Launchpad.
  * Automatic update of included source packages: base-installer
    1.103ubuntu7, choose-mirror 2.29ubuntu3, partman-base 139ubuntu4,
    partman-basicfilesystems 63ubuntu4, tzsetup 1:0.26ubuntu8.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Skip copy_wallpaper_cache when running as oem-config.
  * Update finish-install.d/07oem-config-user for new location of KDE's
    oem-config-prepare .desktop file (LP: #557309).
  * Restore translations for oem-config-check and oem-config-udeb, lost in
    oem-config merge.
  * Display simple progress feedback using debconf-apt-progress while
    removing oem-config (LP: #558593).
  * Write locale-gen output from ubiquity-dm to /var/log/installer/dm rather
    than to the console.
  * Increase kernel flush times (dirty_writeback_centisecs to 3000, and
    dirty_expire_centisecs to 6000) during bulk data copying. Surbhi
    Palande suggests that this should make it easier for the kernel to pack
    blocks contiguously, speeding up ureadahead after installation.
