RAWHIDE/developmental anaconda crashdump.
Have you had a chance to look at this yet? Thanks!
Any updates to this?
Appears fixed in rawhide.
Can you explain why it is still failing on my machine? Is there any useful
information in the 2 crashdumps that I attached?

Your crash dump shows where anaconda is failing. We were trying to display an
error message dialog box when the interface object was set to None. We've fixed
that since you last tried rawhide and now. Your last crash dump is from June
25th (or posted on that date). The changelog shows we fixed this issue on July
16th, so a build after that point will have the fix.
