Anaconda dies with a a tag not found error during harddisk based ks.cfg

this same parameter works fine during a cd-based install w/ a ks.cfg file. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.copy redhat cd to a harddisk partition
2.invoke redhat install using loadlin pointing to a ks.cfg (where lang is 
set to ja_JP.eucJP
3.anaconda will crash during install w/ some error in todo.py

Actual Results:  anaconda will crash during install w/ some error in 

Expected Results:  anaconda should have executed successfully and redhat 
7.0j should have been installed on the system w/ japanese as the set

Please attach the error message.  Otherwise, it's nearly impossible for us to
know exactly where it went wrong.

Here is the exact error message when anaconda dies:

Traceback (innermost last):

Can you try this with 7.1 and see if the problem still exists?  7.1 has full
Japanese support, whereas 7.0 was split into an English and a Japanese product.

I tried to duplicate this in 7.0J, and I could not.  Things worked just fine for
me...after rebooting, the contents of /etc/sysconfig/i18n are:

I wasn't doing a hard drive install, though...I was doing a cdrom install.
However, this should make no difference.  Can you post the kickstart file you
were using?
