I tried this with the precise-desktop ISO and the behavior is a bit
different.  Here's what I did, please verify that it's a useful/accurate
reproduction of your issue.

When I got to the erase/something else screen, I chose the latter
(essentially, manual partitioning).  I created a new partition table,
and then an 8GB root partition on /dev/vda1, which I made an XFS file
system.  Then I put the remaining 500MB or so on /dev/vda2.  I told the
partitioner to install the boot loader on /dev/vda1.  At the end of the
installation, I got a popup window saying:

Executing 'grub-install /dev/vda1' failed.
This is a fatal error.

All you can do at this point is click OK.  Note that /var/log/syslog has
the grub-installer warning mentioned in comment #6, but no Python

I'm inclined to say that this specific bug is no longer valid, so I'm
going to close it.  However, if you can still reproduce it with the
latest 12.04 live CD, please re-open this bug and provide addition
information (e.g. recipe for reproduction, log entries, etc.).  The fact
that you are even given the opportunity to install grub on an
unsupported file system like XFS will be fixed as part of bug 959724.
