This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.4.2

ubiquity (2.4.2) maverick; urgency=low

  [ Jonathon Riddell ]
  * gui/qt/stepLanguage.ui: nicer icons and better layout on
    language page (LP: #628808)

  [ Mario Limonciello ]
  * Set the LANG before running oem-config-remove.
  * Prevent a crash of debconf-communicate when removing oem-config.
    (LP: #641478)
  * Raise privileges when running the language page in only-installable
    mode. (LP: #647792)
  * Automatic update of included source packages: flash-kernel

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Don't let Jockey's automatic driver installation failing cause the
    entire prepare page to fail.
  * Make sure $LANGUAGE gets set in the parallel debconf child process,
    so that we get translated descriptions (LP: #646109).
  * Set the effective UID in regain_privileges_save so we don't try to
    setgroups([]) as a regular user (LP: #646827).

  [ Didier Roche ]
  * depends on latest libindicator-dev for ABI change (LP: #637692, #647739)

I tried installing this morning's daily build of Kubuntu 10.10 for the amd64, and this bug is still present. Was this fix ported to the 64-bit branch as well? At the top I only see the i386 architecture mentioned.

After reading a response to a comment I posted at ubuntuforums, I downloaded another copy of this CD about an hour ago. The installer bug seems to have been fixed.
