Okay, debugging a bit more, lvcreate is called with:

lvm lvcreate -L self.size -n self.name -An self.vgname

and self.size is -32, so this looks like a bug in anaconda.

Kickstart is:

bootloader --location=mbr --driveorder=sda
clearpart --linux --drives=sda
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=50
part pv.1 --size 4800 --grow
volgroup rootvg pv.1
logvol / --vgname=rootvg --size=512 --name=root
logvol swap --fstype=swap --vgname=rootvg --recommended --name=swap
logvol /usr --vgname=rootvg --size=4500 --name=usr
logvol /var --vgname=rootvg --size=512 --name=var
logvol /export/data1 --vgname=rootvg --size=1 --name=data1 --grow

Looks like we're ending up with two swap requests:

, LV Request -- mountpoint: None  uniqueID: 14
  type: swap  format: 1  badblocks: None
  size: -32  lvname: LogVol01  volgroup: 13
  bytesPerInode: 4096  options: 'None'
, LV Request -- mountpoint:   uniqueID: 17
  type: swap  format: True  badblocks: None
  size: 512  lvname: swap  volgroup: 100001
  bytesPerInode: 4096  options: 'None'
