Description of problem:
When trying to create a new partition in disk druid, Anaconda suddenly
crashed with unhandled exceptions, and give me a crash dump which I
could save in floppy (which is good). The crash dump file is attached.

I think I may have unintentionally tryed to create a new partition in
a disk that has no free space, which may caused the crash, but I don't
quite remember. Rebooting the system and tried the install again
worked fine. 

In anycase, user's ignorance or incompetency should not crash the
system :).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 3 WS Update 2

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
I did not try to reproduce the crash, as the next try of the install
worked fine.
