Good news! we're definitely improving towards stability.

The UI is not perfect, truly enough... we'll see what can be done. Let's enjoy stability for a while
Concerning the scary screens, I must say the debate is still open. On one hand, the creen s..ks. On another hand, a few users (well, not many) have not understood what would happen to their target partitions (I know...), and felt sorry afterwards. I prefer them to get such a screen, so at least they won't be able to complain afterwards ! Most users will add a Dont_Warn_Me=Y parameter to the APPEND line of their isolinux.cfg/pxelinux file and forget the screen forever.

It fails because sda contains the image to restore from, but I freaked out before I saw the failure message . . . I certainly didn't want to lose that partition. Anyway, something to consider.
Normally, this point should have been addressed properly, so to avoid trying to extend partitions on the source partition. I'll give it a check.
Thanks for the feedback
