It's worth reading comment #55 in the bug report, pasted for your

"This is obviously suboptimal and if we (relevant developers) had
noticed this in time then we should certainly have fixed it in both
14.10 and earlier versions to reduce confusion. The least invasive fix
is probably to copy the relevant .c32 files from the host system as well
as running syslinux on the image, and comment #52 indicates that this
approach works fine. However, since the most pressing need is to fix
this in updates to usb-creator in 14.04 and earlier releases, there's no
reason for it to block the release of 14.10."

We fully intend to fix this in a Stable Release Update.
