Proposing as blocker cause it breaks the QA:TestCase Shrink Install and QA;Testcase DUal Boot Windows, but would settle for NTH in this 11th hour as the Manual approach does succeed.  MUST BE DOCUMENTED if graded NTH.

Thanks for bringing this up. The Shrink function was removed from guided partitioning because it caused other bugs (bug 875944 and others).

QA test cases are always lacking behind. In this case, this is not a bug in anaconda (the change was intended), but rather the QA test cases became outdated. I have reported a QA ticket about it:

As a technical note: Even if anaconda doesn't conform to some test cases, it's not automatically a blocker bug. Only if it violates release criteria [1], then it's a blocker bug.

Closing this report. Thanks.
