Attached traceback automatically from anaconda.
Try to install a new rawhide release on a already installed harddrive.
Because this should not be a update, but a fresh install. I choose "use entire drive" and mark "review and modify partitioning layout" After the partition layout screen appear, I reduce the size of the lv_swap volume to 1 of the size of ram (1024MB) and reassign the newly free page to lv_root volume. After "OK" and "write changes to disk" the above error occurred.
But if I try the same steps again, the error don't occur again, therefore I can't reproduce it! I know, this is a f***king behaviour, so please feel free to close this bug with "WORKSFORME" or "CANTFIX" without the impact of a flame war if you like :)

Don't feel too bad - a lot of these partitioning bugs depend heavily on what was previously on your disks. If you're trying to reproduce it, you'll probably have to try to reset the disks to whatever they used to be. That's what makes solving these things so hard.
It be interesting if you could describe as thouroughly as possible what you used to have on your Hard Drive. Maybe in that way I can reproduce. If not, I think this should be closed insufficient data.
