I re-tried with beta2 and got a crash at the same point. But now at least we've got a crash dialog "Installer crashed" with the backtrace :

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ubiquity/frontend/kde-ui.py", line 536, in on_next_clicked
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ubiquity/components/usersetup.py", line 50, in ok_handler
    self.preseed('passwd/user-fullname', fullname.encode("UTF-8"))
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ubiquity/filteredcommand.py", line 231, in preseed
    value = value.encode("UTF-8", "ignore")
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 4: ordinal not in range(128)

The character in position 4 is a french accented letter (circumflex i). The installer had chosen for me the "fr-latin9" encoding, which seemed to work.

I'll try again without this accented letter and tell you what happens.
