Description of problem:
This machine has two 3ware 7850's each with 1.1 terabyte arrays.  The related 
boot messages are:

After choosing automatic partitioning or Disk Druid partitioning, an unhandled 
exception occurs with the following:

 "An unhandled exception has occured.  This is most likely a bug.  Please
  copy the full text of this exception or save the crash dump to a floppy
  then file a detailed bug report against anaconda at

  Local variables in innermost frame:

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up machine with a 1.1TB 3ware RAID5 array (8 Maxtor 160 gig drives).
2. Boot skipjack beta 2 CD-ROM.
3. Select automatic partitioning or Disk Druid partitioning.

python2 handles int to long conversions automatically so we get this for free in

Time tracking values updated

I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified
for some period of time.  I believe that most of these issues have been fixed,
so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
