Bug Description

This is probably a gtk issue but I used ubuntu-bug ubiquity to collect installer info.

While performing manual partitioning I notice that when you mouse-over some lines of text describing existing devices other lines of text disappear. If you simply swipe the mouse over that dialog box the lines of text reappear but this could possibly create a great deal of confusion for an inexperienced user.

I'm going to try and attach four screenshots in a tar.gz, if that fails I'll attach each individually.

I noticed weirdness on the PowerPC manual partitioning last night....I changed the use of a partition and when the dialog box was closed the partition list disappeared and seemed to reappear at a crawl. It hadn't entirely come back when I moved onto the next page.

I can reproduce this when installing via manual partitioning on Ubuntu MATE 15.04. It is actually an issue with the Yuyo GTK theme, not Ubiquity.

Ubuntu MATE 15.04 is actually supposed to be using Ambiant-MATE in the live session, which is a bug in itself. I've prepared an updated ubuntu-mate-settings package which will ensure Ambiant-MATE is used for the live session. Hope to get this out on Beta 2.

This now seems fixed for me in 7th March daily image ie 32bit md5sum 0dd2e68c286e627cdfb6af5b7fd14118
Previously in several sequential daily builds most manual device entries would disappear once one was clicked and would only re-appear once the mouse cursor was moved over them.
