Unfortunately I was unable to save the log files as requested, I tried
installing it again in order to reproduce the bug for a third time.since
I had forgotten to include them in my original report, I started up
the ubuntu installer and despite the bug occurring twice before, much to
my disgust/delight I am unable reproduce the error. I cant understand
it on all the occasions I performed the same actions but I simply cannot
reproduce it at all, I have run the installer 7 times now and the bug
only ever occured the first two. I cant explain it and I feel terrible
that I may have wasted your time on this. I have unbuntu running now
(very wobbly with the gnome-mixer applet crashing every 30 seconds) but
I still cannot reproduce the original bug. (bad disk sector maybe??
that's the only explanation I can think of.)
I have your email address so as the ubiquity maintainer I will mail you
and submit another bug report if I encounter it again.
You chaps have my utmost respect in what you do, and your time would be
better spent fire-fighting rather than chasing ghosts in the machine.
I apologise for this, after I encountered it twice I thought I was on to
a sure problem.
Please close the report as unconfirmed until I can prove it exists with
log files to the contrary.
