  Missing "reinstall" option when installing same version of Ubuntu

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

Bug description:
  Using the 20120925 beta2 image of quantal-amd64-desktop, I installed
  using the default "erase everything and install quantal" option.

  Reboot from the install cd, restart the install process, the only options that show up are:
  * Erase Ubuntu quantal and reinstall
    - Encrypt the new Ubuntu installation for security
    - Use LVM with the new Ubuntu installation
  * Something else

  There should be another option for "Reinstall Ubuntu quantal"
  according to the design specifications I've seen.
