Anaconda reports an error when attempting to remove logical volumes

Description of problem:
Anaconda reports an error when attempting to remove logical volumes, and then
reboots the system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I had a disk which previously contained an LVM logicial volume. I
re-initialized the disk using the LSI320 Megaraid utility. But the Red Hat
installer still saw the old LV group. I used Disk Druid in the installer to
delete the old partitions and create new ones. When the installer attempted to
perform the LV removals, I received this error. Then the system rebooted.
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 112386 [details]
anaconda dump file
Peter - this is just another instance of this problem, which I know you've seen
a bunch of times and know how to fix by hand at least.
Volume group VolGroup00 metadata is inconsistent
Volume group for uuid not found:
Unable to deactivate logical volume "LogVol00"
Device '/dev/sda2' has been left open.
Inconsistent metadata copies found - updating to use version 4
Are you still having this problem with RHEL 4.7?
