This appears to be a bug that snuck into the seeds that were used to build ISO's for Ubuntu 11.10, presumably fairly late, as it was not caught in the fairly comprehensive beta ISO testing.


The task option itself is not really useful, and shouldn't be seen there.

    I'll use this in case someone ever wants an example for slow bug fixing in Ubuntu (11.10-14.04 = 2.5 years). Jan 26, 2017 at 14:15
