[ubuntu-uk] Upgrade woes

I have just tried to upgrade my sickly install of 10.04 to 10.10. The
install process failed just after half way when it threw up a window
which appeared to be asking me what I wanted to do with my modified
version of GRUB2. This window was positioned behind the progress window,
and I could only see the top quarter of the window, which contained a
drop down list of options of what to do with my current version of GRUB.
The bottom three quarters of the window were hidden so I could not
select any 'Accept' button. I was unable to move either window to one
side, nor shrink either window. The install stopped at this point and my
only option was to press the power button. My computer is now dead. I
shall have to download the ISO and try a fresh install.

Please note that I had added boot options to GRUB in an effort to solve
my reliability problems in 10.04.

Has anyone else seen this problem? I do not know if this is a bug that
needs filing, or another symptom of my faulty install of 10.04.
