Ubiquity doesn't create a swap partition that is big enough to hibernate

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

This is my experience and understanding that the hibernation in Ubuntu requires a swap partition that is >= RAM in order to hibernate even when most of the ram is used.

Ubiquity doesn't seem to take the user's ram into account when choosing a swap partition size. For example, on this netbook with 2GB of RAM the swap partition was onlz 900MB and hibernation failed under high load.
