Bug Description

Precise Desktop 20120319

The guided partitioner doesn't show which partition is which when the user resizes the partitions.
For example, in the screenshot attached, it is not clear if 'Windows 7' is the partition on the left (21.5GB) or on the right (21.4GB)

If I press the alt key or press alt-tab the Install window is redrawn and I then see information about the release of ubuntu and the partition name in the divider.

I was running unity-2d in a virtual machine when I encountered this.

The problem is the same on hardware with compiz running. I confirm that pressing ALT reveal the labels but not permanently.

It also seems to me that the icons are missing in this screen.
