[Bug 1045799] Re: Manual partitioner: Add tooltips to icons 'Add', 'Remove', and 'Modify'

This is particularly true, and IMO critical, if a partition is
highlighted and someone clicks on "-". At that point the highlighted
partition is just deleted with no further warning!

This change could easily lead us back to a lost data/OS situation like
we faced in Maverick :^(

I actually wonder if just a tooltip is adequate for "-"?

I suspect that if a potential Ubuntu convert inadvertently loses data
during installation they're gone forever.

  Manual partitioner: Add tooltips to icons 'Add', 'Remove', and

Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:

  Quantal Desktop 20120903.4

  On the manual partitioner there are 3 small icons below the partition
  list: a plus sign, and minus sign, and a gear. But their meaning is
  not clear and tooltips like "Add partition", "Remove partition" and
  "Modify partition" would clarify their usage.
