Bug#562051: Partman hanging on 52%, Polish language on MD devices
reassign 562051 partman-md
tag 562051 unreproducible moreinfo
I've tried to reproduce this with both a daily image and a Lenny image.
I've not used the identical disk layout, but I did create 3 RAID devices
over 2 disks.

The strange thing is that in neither of the cases below does a progress bar
appear. And it should not either. There are some actions executed in the
described situations, but those don't have a progress bar.

Here I simply get the configuration menu for the selected partition.

Here I get the confirmation dialog for finishing the partitioning. Only
*after* I confirm that do we get a progress bar, but for ext3 that only
ever goes up to 33%, and not 52%.
AFAICT partman behaves correctly, even in Polish ;-)
Without degugging info from someone who can reproduce the problem there's
nothing more we can do here.
