When leaving the "Install default theme" checkbox unchecked the installer still complains about the user theme directory not being writable:


The installer is not going to write anything to this directory in this case, so I think one should be able to install EE w/o having it fail.

If this directory being writable is indeed a requirement for the installation of EE it would be better if this was verified at an earlier stage (where the config.php / database.php checks are).
