Thanks for testing, Scott!

Were you able to complete the install? If so, please run:

ubuntu-bug ubiquity

To submit the bug with this explanation to the installer package
(ubiquity). This will get it to the right people who can look into it

I was able to install it but I'm not able to file a bug with ubuntu-bug. I 
entered the command as given but it gives me the error "no packages found 
matching ubiquity". I'll go ahead and file a bug manually through launchpad
