I did an upgrade from 11.04 to 11.10 and had this problem, so I did an
install which reused
my, at the time current, setup without change.
That got me the same results so I eventually did a complete reinstall
and the (-) settings are what
resulted from that. The last reinstall reformatted the drive.
