Description of problem:
Please see video. I set my swap partition to be 512MB but anaconda ignores my request and creates it much larger.

The workaround I have found is to delete the partition and create it again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 16 Alpha RC3

How reproducible:
seems always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have default layout without lvm
2. delete /boot
3. change /swap size
Actual results:
new swap size is not set

Expected results:
new swap size is set

Ok, I have a patch to fix this. In the meantime, if you just activate the "fixed size" radiobutton instead of the "fill all space up to ____" radiobutton, you will get the result you want.
