Public bug reported:

Yesterday I tried to install Dapper on a completely blank PC. I planned
to install Windows later too, so I made 4 partitions in GParted (all
primary), formatted the 1st one as ext3 and the third one as fat32. And
the installer (and the whole system) simply froze when it reached the
partitioner. After trying two more times, I deleted the fat32 partition
and it started "simply working"!

BTW, I have experienced this before, with another Ubuntu version, on
another PC and another HDD!

Just recreated the situation - and it's all the same. No FAT32 partition
- everything works, create one - everything doesn't.

(can't attach /var/log/installer/syslog and /var/log/partman as they are
on RAM and system freezes...)

** Affects: gparted (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed
