Bug#410574: debian-installer: System halted on using <back> button in partition resize screen.

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

I used the debian-installer a number of times, and at one time I was 
working with it's partitioning resizing functionality. I hit the back 
button before I did anything permanent, but at that moment my system 
froze. Only a hard reset brought the system out of the freeze.

I'm sorry I do not have any more info, but at that moment I wasn't doing 
anything important (at least in my perception) and only after hitting 
the reset button it occured to me that I really should be logging what I 
was doing. 

The system itself is very stable, there has been no other 
occasion it crashed. Therefore I thought it was important enough to 
bring this incident to your attention.

The problem occured when installing a i386 architecture. The 
installation of this amd64 architecture, as well as other installation 
attempts of the i386 architecture system never failed on this part. The 
problem only occured once.

Regards. Geert-Jan.
