Can you please try the new beta4 and see if it acts better?

beta4 uses a totally new partitioning tool.

Hmm, GRUB is used by default now, although LILO is still available.  I
don't use Intel so I'm not sure if you can choose not to install in
the MBR.  Can you give beta4 a try and let us know?  Then we can
reassign this bug to grub/lilo-installer if needed.
