Bug description:
  when choosing manual partitioning, installer crashes when setting mount points. after many attempts where the installer just disapeared, I got:
  Exception in KDE frontend (invoking crash handler):
  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/lib/ubiquity/ubiquity/frontend/kde_components/PartitionModel.py", line 105, in parent
      return self.createIndex(parentItem.row(), 0, parentItem)
  AttributeError: Partition instance has no attribute 'row'

  rather frustrating - I can set up 2 or 3 partitions before it crashes. I have 2 disks, sda and sdb and it doesn't reliably crash on any particular partition or disk. My Machine is currently a dual-boot Kubuntu 10.04 / Win 7 Ultimate. I wanted a complete fresh start for 12.04 so I was going to format the linux partitions

  sda1 bootable, NTFS
  sda2  Extended
  sda5  ext4  /home
  sda6 ext4  /var

  sdb1 NTFS
  sdb2 bootable ext4 /boot
  sdb3 Extended
  sdb5 ext4   /
