Bug#56270: boot-floppies: after disk partitioning, asks about reboot!

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.2.5pre
Severity: normal

I had a system that already had partitions. I booted up to dinstall, and told
it to turn on swap and to format and mount the first partition as root.
Then I changed my mind, and selected partition from the menu, and re-did the
partitioning. The bug is that as soon as I left cfdisk, it prompted me
asking if I wanted to reboot now, with no explination.

(I wonder if that was intentional, because in some cases you may have to
reboot to get the kernel to see the new partition scheme. But it didn't
mention that at all.)
