I do not experience this in trusty. Is this still an issue?

  environment block not implemented on btrfs

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: grub2

  I just installed natty alpha 3 on a samsung NC10 netbook. When booting, immediately after the grub screen I see the error message:
  'sparse file not allowed. 
  press any key to continue'
  after pressing any key the boot continues as normal.

  This is with btrfs on / and a separate ext4 partition for /home. I had
  created the btrfs partition manually (i.e. in a shell outside
  ubiquity) simply running mkfs.btrfs /dev/sda1 and it was not
  reformatted in ubiquity.
