[Lucid] "Where are you?" screen doesn't select timezone

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

When installing the current daily built of Lucid, at the second step ("Where are you?" screen) the timezone isn't selected when picking it from the map. In order to make it work is necessary first to select a region (any region), and after that you can choose your timezone from the map as usual.

This bug is still present in the latest Ubuntu daily built.
As an additional note, I first started the LiveUSB and then click on 'Install Ubuntu 10.04'.

This appears to be because the geoip server reports America/Mendoza whereas tzsetup interprets that timezone as Argentina/Mendoza. The installer should also fail more gracefully on timezones it does not understand.

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.2.23

ubiquity (2.2.23) lucid; urgency=low

  * Correctly select the detected timezone (LP: #559647).
  * Don't reboot on failure if we say we're not going to.
  * Always run wrap_fix in its entirety, even if the width or height
    hasn't changed, as we may have switched text direction since the
    last run (LP: #560114).
  * Properly align keyboard_test_label, which was getting cut off in RTL
    languages with the wrap_fix in place.
