Bug Description

Oneiric Desktop 20110822

This was fixed in bug 769043 and is a regression

When creating partitions or selecting existing partitions in the manual partitioning tool, the mount point box does not accept keyboard input. The dropdown still works, so the default values (/, /home, etc.) can still be selected, but a new one cannot be specified. The partition size spinbox still works correctly, so keyboard input is definitely working.

@ Jean-Baptiste,

Could you please look at bug 831649? It's not a true dupe because this bug effects the "mount point" dialog whereas it effects the "use as" dialog where you select partition type.

I just want to be sure I didn't leave anything out ;^)
