Traceback for Etc/UTC anaconda crash
Traceback as requested. It looks like it can't find Etc on the world map, but that's just my guess from looking at the trace for a few seconds.
We're definitely not seeing this here with rawhide. I suppose there could have been a problem in s-c-date for the beta. Reassigning so they can take a look.

This is also a problem in Fedora 9 as I have just learned, so this isn't new.
I've attached my backtrace from Bug 467552,

This should be fixed in 1.9.34. I'll ask Release Engineering to include this version in F10 final.
