stray "1" appended to partition labels

Description of Problem:
Stray "1"s are being appended to partitioned labels.
Behavior varies from install to install. The "1" gets appended to different
Steps to Reproduce:
1. NFS install on a laptop
2. Select Laptop installation option
3. Select auto-partitioning
One time the /boot partition had the label /boot1
Another time the /boot partition had the label /boot, but the / partition
had the label /1
no appended "1"s
they're not stray, they get appeneded when a label of that name already exists.
There was a bug that would see the existing / label on a partition that was
going to be formatted, so the label got set to /1. next install it would be /
again. This is fixed.
Happened with me too.
