UnboundLocalError variable 'dev' in network.py 529

anaconda 220.127.116.11 exception report
While installing Fedora 10 beta 1, after resolving dependencies, Anaconda crashes with a traceback in file "/usr/lib/anaconda/network.py", line 529, "in write" ... "if dev.get('GATEWAY'):" UnboundLocalError: local variable 'dev' referenced before assignment.
I searched for these symptoms and found a single document being the attached pastebin output someone else had posted with what appears to be largely identical output to the problem I am having.
This occurs in both text and graphical modes. I tried passing manual IP configuration to the kernel, noipv4/6, all to no avail.
The machine is a Panasonic CF-U1 laptop/netbook, currently with no ethernet card/dock and only wireless (Intel 5100).
Thanks for any assistance!
I'm having this same problem (but wasn't able to capture any more information unfortunately), and I suspect its due to not having an Ethernet card (or in my case, having an intel nic that is susceptible to bz 459202).
I've had a quick look at the source code (network.py). The 'write' function doesn't handle cases where there are no nics (which causes dev to be undefined).
