Custom partitioning: swapon failed for /dev/sda2

Created attachment 336368 [details]
I attempted a simple custom partition layout - 3 bare partitions, no LVM: ext3 /boot, 1024MB swap, everything else / - in a KVM guest.
I got a traceback indicating that swapon seems to have failed - the message on tty5 says:
"swapon: can't stat '/dev/sda2': No such file or directory"
but /dev/sda2 does exist. Perhaps there's a race between anaconda and udev here?
Full dump is attached. here's the traceback:
anaconda 188.8.131.52 exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/storage/devicelibs/swap.py", line 85, in swapon
