Perhaps future Versions of the installer's partition editor should check for the correct flag in the partition table.
I agree here. It should at least throw an error message early on so that you don't have to waste so much time and know already before copying begins that something isn't 100% right. But this odd behaviour seems to be present in Ubuntu too. I wonder if this is a bug or if they did this with a specific purpose in mind?
