The crash happens after the manual part of the installation. The
installer text is: Creating user....
A new window opens with the following text:
We're sorry, the installer crashed. After you close this window, we'll allow you to file a bug
report using the integrated bug reporting tool. This will gather information about your
system and your installation process. The details will be sent to our bug tracker and a
developer will attend to the problem as soon as possible.
