There are IMHO currently 2 small problems with the way the partition
mounting is handled:

1.) It is not possible to mount a partition the installer recognizes as
unknown because it tries to call "mount -t unknown" which of course will
always fail. The attached fix does not really break something because if
mount recognizes the partition type it will succeed if it doesn't well
it will fail the same way it did before.

2.) It is possible to define Other partition types in the ncurses based
version and safe it to an installprofile.xml but it is not possible to
load such a profile because the self defined type is not a known type,
which results in the installer deleting the partition regardless of the
format or resize flags.
