Autopartitioning on text install gives odd results

text install on Sony Vaio PCG-SR1K with 9Gb disk and 128Mb RAM.
Selected autopartitioning. Came up with: (sorry, formatting will be vile)
/dev/hda1 1 1066 8361M ext3 /
/dev/hda2 1067 1093 211M swap
/dev/hda3 1094 1099 47M ext3 /boot
* I don't pretend to understand partitioning, but I thought /boot was

* 128M RAM. Shouldn't swap have been 256M, not 211? It's not as though
there is a lack of space.
Accepted it anyway.
We attempt swap from a starting size equal to RAM to 2*RAM. It grows along with
the other growable partitions (/ in this case) so it may not get its entire
We known about the /boot problem, katzj is working on it.
This is fixed in our internal trees; thanks for the report
