Just FYI - I downloaded & burned Lubuntu 12.04 beta 1 x86-32 today. I
can't install it on my main Lubuntu box. Ubiquity crashes consistently
- 3 reboots, 3 times. It makes no odds if I choose an update, include
or exclude updates or restricted-extras.

If I try to report it, it says it's already logged on the page open in
the web browser - then fails to open a page. >_<

I am currently burning the Alternate CD - I'll try that.
