Description Hans de Goede 2009-04-22 06:42:18 EDT
Description of problem:
I envisioned this while working on a fix for bug 496638 (as that fix
will have the same issues), I haven't actually tried this, but
it is pretty clear this will be a real problem.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do an install with hd media, with the media being
   a logical partition for example sda6
2. Choose custom partitioning remove sda5
3. Now sda6 has become sda5 and thus can be happily edited

Possible fix:
-When a partition changes name check protecedPartitions for
 the old name and replace it with the new name if necessary.
 This can be done in Partition.updateName().
