Creating partitions with partman in the graphical install causes random
crashes with Gtk errors about assertion failures.  partman restarts with
a set of unpartitioned disks, making it impossible to ever finish
partitioning.  I filed another bug for that one.  Text install seems to
create partitions fine, but RAID fs creation hangs.
