F11-beta Anaconda crash report

Description of problem:

Hardware: Dell Latitude E6500

When trying to create a custom layout (in order to keep my system dual-boot), I managed to create an ext3 "/boot" in the extended partition, but when I then attempted to use the rest of the free space for an LVM PV, anaconda reported an exception. This happened twice; the second time I managed to save the exception report.

Perhaps related (or not), after installing F10 on the laptop, I then attempted an install/upgrade using F11-beta again. I selected, "replace existing Linux system" and, once again, anaconda crashed. I don't have the crash report of that one, but it should be easy enough to reproduce.

It almost looks as if anaconda doesn't like LVM. *Sigh* just when I was getting used to the idea of LVM... :-(

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): (from F11-beta x86_64 DVD)

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system with F11-beta DVD
2. Select Install/Upgrade
3. At the disk partitioning step, select "custom layout"
4. Create an ext3 /boot partition (125M)
5. Create a new LVM PV using the remaining space.
Actual results:

Anaconda crashes.

Expected results:

Either a diagnostic messages as to why the operation failed, or a proper (re-)partitioning of the disk.

Additional info:

Anaconda also fails to re-use an existing layout when selecting "replace existing Linux installation".
