  [regression] Manual partitioner only creates primary partitions

Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in “ubiquity” source package in Quantal:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Quantal Desktop 20120904.1

  There is no option to select the type of partition - primary or
  logical - in the manual partitioner. It limits the number of
  partitions to 4 on a fresh drive and the remaining free space is
  marked as unusable. This is a regression over Alpha 3

  If a logical partition already exists, logical partitions are
  automatically created when the limit of 4 primary partition is

  The specification says [1]:
  "On a disk that uses MBR, if you choose “Use for: Windows (bootable)” for a new partition, it should be created as a primary partition. Any other type of new partition should be created as a logical partition"
