        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

KVM/Qemu 2GiB mem, e1000, IDE CD ROM, 16GiB (or less) IDE virtual Disk.

* Behaviour 
IDE qcow2 virtual disk image 16GiB selected.  CD ROM image boots, Desktop is displayed.  Dialog appears - "Installation failed -- LKialog ? - The installer encountered an unrecoverable error...".

Repeated test on 12GiB disk - Same Error.
Repeated test on 20GiB disk - Success, ubiquity loads correctly.

* Expected behaviour
Kubuntu Ubiquity continues to load with "Install Kubuntu" button. A warning to user during partitioning of insufficient disk space for Kubuntu install.   

No /var/log/partman log present.
