Description of problem:
Upgrading my Vaio laptop from RH 7.2, I have one big
partition for Linux, no swap partition.  Installer
prompted to either create a swap file or not to (radio
button selection).  When I elected to create one, it
crashed.  Repeated the install without creating one,
and it went smoothly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Selected "Upgrade existing installation".
2. In dialog where it suggests a new swap file, I selected
   the option to create the newer/bigger swap file
   (I only have one ext3 partition, no separate partition for swap).
3. Click [Next] or whatever, anaconda crashes in line 50
   of /usr/lib/anaconda/iw/upgrade_swap_gui.py, with 
   "rc not defined" or something to that effect. 

Actual Results:  Installer "crashed", but let me jump into Python debugger
to look at the problem.

Expected Results:  Installer should not have crashed. :)

Additional info:

Looking at /usr/lib/anaconda/iw/upgrade_swap_gui.py.
it appears that if the "if" clause on line 39 evaluates
false, rc isn't set.

Already fixed in CVS (dupe of a few others)
