I Have this bug after the click to format usbpen

it says

Data Storage to Use: one item which is already selected:

/!\ Format needed : /dev/sdb

so I clicked format and the installer and crashed repeatedly, even after the usb-stick had been formatted by hand.

..after a while I noticed that there is a second entry in the list (which is not visible except for the scrollbar on the right)
which is /dev/sdb1 (which I formatted by hand after the first crash)

..well this works!

..maybe the layout of the installer could show at least two lines of choice, so that people are able to find the right entry ?

I presume it is not a bug, but merely the right choice to be made is obscured by the gui-layout

  * usbcreator/
    - Do not copy /syslinux/syslinux.cfg to root of disk, no longer needed.
    - Look at all files ending in .cfg under the syslinux directory when
      updating configuration files based on the options selected in usb-creator.
    - Strip tabs when parsing iso/syslinx config files to correctly identify
      commands in a syslinux config file that indents lines.

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Small fixes to Cody's changes to the mangle_syslinux function:
    - Don't assume / is the path separator.
    - Add command line entries to the front, to avoid them being carried over
      to the installed system.
    - Write all lines, not just modified ones.
  * Properly set the icons in the source treeview. Thanks John S.
    Gruber (LP: #436469).
  * Handle the device no longer existing in fs_size (LP: #439001).
  * Update translations from Launchpad.

  [ Roderick B. Greening ]
  * Fix issues with UTF.8 (unicode) strings being cast to str
    (LP: #440719).
    - Updated KDE Front-end
