It should be noted that sda3 is the only partition we seem to
successfully mount during probing, and that its neibour sda4 which
shares a boundary with it is also potentially active as swap:

  mount it or use it in any way before rebooting."

  I made no changes.  The installer comes up with this error all on its
  own right before the "Where are you?" screen.
