I should add that I always partition my drive(s) prior to install of any distro, and I NEVER let grub touch the mbr - rather, I let it install to the root of the install partition. I have an insane number of installed distros and hence a very carefully crafted menu.lst (yes, I prefer legacy grub - specifically that installed by openSUSE as it's patched to include support for gpt among other things).
I've really put Manjaro through its paces, installing various DEs and WMs and testing them. Only gnome proved problematic (won't load at all) but I've had that issue on Arch as well. Never bothered to research it as I despise gnome-shell more than any other DE. Manjaro seems best with xfce, but KDE and LXDE work quite nicely as well. Haven't experienced a single application crash. This is a distro with a bright future.

Anyway, the GUI installer will be something quite special. It has a particularly unique feature that has not been mentioned publically yet. I can't tell you either. But, believe me, it is both unique and amazing to the point that the 0.9 release will make all the previous versions look like something from the stone age.

I do not know if the next version will be 0.8.4 or 0.9, but no doubt that Manjaro will make history in the Linux universe.-
