Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 128972
Cannot use up/down arrows to create ext3 partition greater than 200000 MB

Description of problem:
Unexpected behavior when creating a partition using
redhat-config-kickstart. The user is unable to use the up arrow to
create an ext3 partition larger than 200000 MB.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In the redhat-config-kickstart tool, in the Partition Information
tab, click Add.
2. Use the up arrow for size to create a partition of > 200000 MB
(hold a really long time or input 199999 and press up twice).
Actual Results: The up arrow deactivates at 200000 MB. It is easy to
work around by entering the size manually, but this artificial limit
is confusing for users.
Expected Results: The up arrow should continue to function, allowing
the creation of an arbitrarily large partition (at least up to 1TB).
Upped to arbitrary limit of 1e+12, it'll get built in next time I
