Bug Description


I have been making lots of USB sticks recently and noticed a reproducable error on Oneiric and Precise. For some reason the selection at the bottom of the screen for reserved disk space is greyed out sometimes. However it can be re-enabled by choosing a different ISO image.

I have made a little video to illustrate this.

looks like this is because the remaining free space is less than MIN_PERSISTENCE, 1024MB

this seems rather a large minimum, and rather a poor user experience, in particular it doesn't let the user choose not to do a persistence file and doesn't move the radio button to indicate one won't be created.
