Nope.  It's just the standard "development code, bugs may exist"
warning.  For example, if you were testing the installer by installing
to a separate partition of your hard drive and there was a bug in the
installer which changed the partition it was installing to, that would
wipe your existing install.

No bugs of that kind are known at the moment as far as I know, but
bugs like that may exist.  Hence we give warning.
