Exception while reinitializing disk

Description of problem:
I wrote over the partition data in order to force anaconda to reinitialize the partitions since there was some partitially valid data from previous failed install attempts that might have been causing problems. However this resulted in an exception.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
April 14 rawhide boot.iso. The failure happened before networking was set up so it wouldn't have been using the updates.img I had in my local repo.
So far I have only tried once.
Steps to Reproduce:
Further testing with specifying updates as a kernel parameter seems to prevent the problem, so it's probably already been fixed. But it also might be the third disk had different random data that didn't cause an exception.
