It is supposed to find it. There is a bug in Ubuntu 12.04:
This was reported more than a year ago.
That bugs.Launchpad notes an upstream fix a year ago, so the bug was
marked as "Fix Released" almost a year ago.
But no update to 12.04 has been issued.
This is an example of why I am less comfortable with Ubuntu.
I had similar problems with Fedora that were resolved more quickly:
Fedora could not mount the Ubuntu partition for examination because it
wasn't SELinux labelled. Of course requiring a Ubuntu partition to be
labelled for Fedora isn't reasonable.
Not a Fedora bug. Fedora could not mount the Ubuntu partition because
Ubuntu didn't cleanly unmount it. An fsck was required.
