I run QA:Testcase_Anaconda_traceback_debug_mode (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_Anaconda_traceback_debug_mode) on f28 Fedora-Server-dvd-ppc64le-28-20180410.n.1.iso and anaconda core
I start a VM install using command:
/usr/bin/qemu-system-ppc64 -name vm52 -enable-kvm -M pseries -smp 4 -m 8G -nographic -nodefaults -monitor stdio -serial pty -device virtio-net-pci,netdev=net10092,mac=ff:ff:ff:00:00:52 -netdev bridge,br=br0,id=net10092 -cdrom isolef28 -drive file=hd1.qcow2 -usb -usbdevice disk:hd2.qcow2 -boot d -S
I start VNC in GUI mode and get the first "Welcome to fedora 28" panel
I switch to a different terminal and run the following command:
kill -USR1 `cat /var/run/anaconda.pid`
On VNC I get a new panel "An unknown error has occured" as expected.
then I click on "more..." and then on "Debug"
[anaconda root@localhost ~]# date
Wed Apr 11 15:39:12 UTC 2018
At this time the VNC closes and the "main" console scratch with "Pane is dead"
instead of having a (Pdb) shell.
note that anaconda produces a core file.

I cannot attach the anaconda core as it is too big, you can find it at https://menantea.fedorapeople.org/anaconda.core.gz
This problem does not exist on f29 Beta versions
