Anaconda error - no usable disks present

Description of problem:
When installing RHEL6-snapshot10, at the time when you select a disk for installation, when I select a multipath device, I get the message, "no usable disks have been found". This is an HP blade system, connected through an Emulex Mezz card (I've tried both LP1105 and a converged network adapter). I've tried it through a Brocade and a QLogic fabric. I've also changed storage arrays. I've tried an EVA6400 and an XP20000. I've also tried both i386 and x64 flavors of RHEL6. I've also tried doing a dd of dev/zero to the boot LUN I'm trying to use. All of these produce the same results. However, if there's only one path, there is no problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm not sure what the release version numbers are with Snapshot-10
For me, this happens every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. begin install of RHEL6 Snapshot10
2. choose a multipath device to install the OS to.
Message "No usable disks have been found"
I expected the disk to be able to be used for installing the OS.

In this log, I'm noticing some lines where it's ignoring ALL of the multipathed devices.

I do not have access to that bug report. Can you grant it? Or give me status on the issue?
A potential fix for this issue is in anaconda-13.21.74-1 and is currently being tested. If all goes well, it'll be fixed in RHEL6 GA,
