Did a zsync to 20120331 3.2.0-21-generic lubuntu

Install was running copying files, progress bar well across the screen when install window disappeared and went back to desk top.

Same ubiquity bug for me (lubuntu 12.04 wget 2012-06-02).

May be similar to Bugs 984184 on Xubuntu and 978489 on Lubuntu and Bug #985354.
