Not enough /dev/hda entries created by installer

Description of problem:
I partitioned a large IDE disk into 17
partitions using DiskDruid with /tmp on
/dev/hda17. The installer only created
entries for hda1 to hda16 so it failed to
mount /tmp properly when it booted for the
first time. It ought to count the number of
partitions in the partition table and create
enough /dev entries to cope.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Partition your first IDE disk using
DiskDruid to get at least 17 partions.
Try having /tmp on /dev/hda17
2.Comlete the installation as normal
3.Watch what happens on reboot
Actual Results: I forget the precise problem/error but
it related to the fact that /dev/hda17
did not exist so /tmp couldn't be mounted.
Instead the mount point was used as /tmp.
Expected Results: The installer ought to create /dev entries
for every partition that it has been told
about (from DiskDruid or whatever).
