LVMError: lvactivate failed for lv_root

Attached traceback automatically from anaconda.
First time running the installer, I let the installer create a partition schema with a password encryption for the root partition. When the installer tried to activated the new partitions, I got a similar failure to the above. The above trace is from a second try - however now it seems I never come to the stage where I can choose which disks to install to.
Don't know if it's important, but trying to inspect the partition layout in fdisk produced this message: "Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary."
