Thank you for reporting this bug and help to make Ubuntu better!

Umh... I noted also gnome-control-center doesn't check for unsafe
password... This is an idea for control-center and ubiquity, so I'll
mark the bug against they.

In quantal the situation is the same...

  Unsecure passwords reported as acceptable during installation

Bug description:
  This happened in a livecd installation from the ubuntu 12.04 desktop
  i386 iso file.

  During a installation on a VM I decided that the username should be
  usuario (user in spanish) and the password should be contraseña
  (password in spanish). The language of the installer was set to

  The bug is that the password "contraseña" was marked as acceptable
  (aceptable in spanish), witch is not.

  I suggest a password strength verification that includes the most used
  passwords (like 1234 or qwerty) or, at least, a dictionary that
  includes the word password in every language.

  I understand that the system must perceive the "ñ" character as a
  special symbol, but having declared a spanish keyboard it should not
  be treated as such. Nor with any other keymap and symbol that is non-
  english but present on them.
