This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.4.0

ubiquity (2.4.0) maverick; urgency=low

  [ Sebastian Heinlein ]
  * Rework oem-config-gtk to use a mainloop (LP: #637517)

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Call gconftool-2 --set with --config-source.
  * Better lock down the installer environment when past partitioning.
  * Lock down the installer environment when at partitioning commit,
    rather than just after automatic partitioning (and not manual
    partitioning) (LP: #640604, LP: #641897).
  * Do not show the quit button in OEM mode.
  * Depend on aptdaemon (LP: #641051).
  * Fix the skip download button (LP: #628311).
  * Make the '[type here to change]' string translatable (LP: #642989).
  * Disable the non-free software option if multiverse and restricted
    are disabled via preseed (LP: #641676).
  * Install kubuntu-restricted-addons, not kubuntu-restricted-extras
    (LP: #643614).
  * Clear hostname error when fixed (LP: #640661).
  * Deal with broken /cdrom symlinks (LP: #642274).
  * Disable locking the screen and switching users in the installer
    session (LP: #644016).
  * Update translations from Launchpad.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Stop ubiquity and oem-config when stopping display managers. This
    should guarantee that X has exited by the time we try to start plymouth
    on shutdown (LP: #628630).
