anaconda crash dump

Description of problem:
while installing F11, after disk partitioning and during grub configuration, tried to rename 'other' OS to Vista. it removed the 'default' check box from fedora. trying to re-default fedora clicking on the 'fedora' check box, I got the crash.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 installer from X86_64 Gnome DVD

How reproducible:
got it just once. following time, I avoided to touch the grub config and the installation went on.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. buy a HDX16, shrink the C: partition to leave space for Fedora
2. install fedora on it, choosing 'install on free space'
3. try to change the name of 'Other' OS to 'Vista', you loose the default boot check mark on 'Fedora', so try setting it back and you get the crash
Actual results:
anaconda crash

Expected results:
