Configure volume group window

Description of problem:
By default the installer proposed some logical volumes for the installation of Fedora 26. By default it also suggests to encrypt those volumes. I disabled the encryption and confirmed the change, then changed my mind and tried to turn it back on. This gives a "device reconfiguration failed" error, asking for details just spawns an empty window with a close button. Anaconda didn't go down entirely and in the end I managed to work around this by disabling encryption just once on one logical volume, so that only the logical volume on my HDD which housed my /home directory was encrypted.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The Anaconda version shipped with Fedora 26.

How reproducible:
I'm on a PC with both one SSD and one HDD and chose a clean installation, overwriting any existing OS's (just Fedora 24). I think this might be related to the issue. Open a LVM logical volume in the manual partitioning, disable encryption. Then open it again and enable encryption. Now receive the error message.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install on a PC with one HDD and one SSD, overwrite any existing OS's.
2. In manual partitioning, pick LVM and open a logical volume.
3. Disable encryption and apply the change.
4. Open it again, enable encryption and apply the change.
5. See the error message. 

Actual results:
"Device reconfiguration failed" error with unspecified details.

Expected results:
No crash, disabling and enabling shouldn't cause issues.
