In text mode System to upgrade screen crops text when used with encrypted disk

Description of problem:
When performing a second install on a system with encrypted disk anaconda asks you whether you want to do a fresh install or upgrade the existing system. In text mode some of the text is cropped out of the screen, see attached screenshot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create system with encrypted disk. I have
swap - encrypted on raw partition
2 raid members, encrypted forming /dev/md0 formatted as PV
1 PV encrypted
1 VG, containing 1 LV for /, also encrypted
2. Start a second install, pass "text" on command line
When anaconda reaches the screen "System to upgrade" some of the text is cropped out.
All text is visible
The problem seems to be that the root partition is identified via UUID and is too long. If I use a default LVM + encryption partitioning after entering the passphrase in anaconda it shows the root volume as /dev/VolGroup-lv_root which
fits nicely into the screen.
