Description of problem:
I am trying to get kickstart to reuse some existing partitions via the lines
part raid.0 --onpart=sda1
part raid.1 --onpart=sdb1
raid / --fstype=ext3 --level=RAID1 raid.0 raid.1
part swap --onpart=sda2
part swap --onpart=sdb2
to preserve the data on the other partitions and anaconda crashes with the error
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'getActualSize'

The error seems to be with the raid disks (which incidentally are exactly the
same size). I have now worked around the problem by removing the sda1 and sdb1
partitions, then letting it size the raid itself (having made sure that the only
free space was where sda1 and sdb1 had been).
