I hit this issue multiple times trying to install 11-Sep quantal-
desktop-amd64.iso on a MacBookAir3,1. I tried to run "ubuntu-bug
ubiquity" multiple times and attach to this bug but my logs never
successfully attached to this bug.

Which logs from /var/log/installer would you need to see? After sitting
for an hour at "Copying installation logs..." I just did a sudo reboot
from the terminal and the system came back fine. I do appear to have a
set of logs in /var/log/installer.
