Bug Description

Selected "Erase disk and install Ubuntu-Studio". ubiquity repartitioned disk and formated one of them. Then this partition automounted and so ubiquity failed. It put up a dialog which I OKed and then another asking if it should try unmounting, yes. Then I was right back to the same screen asking how I wanted to install.

I suspect the DE has made some gratuitous interface change yet again. Unfortunately there is nothing new under the sun. See:
