Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Natty daily build: natty-desktop-i386.iso (27-04-2010)

Choosing Polish (Polski) language in installer causes it's window to resize badly. Buttons are too wide and the width of whole window is too big, it's even more than 1024px (1083px to be exact). There is no reason for such dimensions.
This causes a bug when you choose to install Ubuntu alongside other system. When divider that allows to allocate drive space from biggest partition shows up, you can set desired amount of drive space but when you hit 'install now' window will change it's width (it will become narrower), which will make divider also change it's width (but it won't keep values set by user few seconds ago) and everything will end up with almost random value of drive space assigned for Ubuntu.

200GB partition, divider set in the middle (100GB | 100GB)
after hitting 'install now' window's resizing happened and I ended up with divider set a little bit on the right side (120GB | 80GB).

The real problem seems to be the size of the window. It should keep same width all the time or divider should be able to scale with window without messing in it's values.
The problem is also that Polish language makes windows being too wide during whole installation process.

Tests made on VirtualBox.

Official Ubuntu 11.04 (choosed polish language) and look - how installer looks like:

Also, I noticed a double scrollbar near text field on bottom of a window. This very small orange one, and on the left of it, was another one with grey scrolling bar. It becomes visible when I started using this orange one.
Also, the text field with log stopped showing new information straight after I clicked it with right mouse button (trying to copy text from text field to gedit) I also use CTRL+C shortcut. Then I saw "^C" and it was a last word in the log (in the middle of installing Ubuntu).
