Sorry, here you are. FWIW I saw this on liveinst from http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/f16-translation/Fedora-16-Nightly-20110828.10-x86_64-Live-desktop.iso
Your system is running out of memory. The kernel oom-killer is killing processes to get total memory usage within limits and has killed the swapoff process, along with several others.
We should be able to fix this up by decreasing memory usage via the lorax treebuilder branch, but there's nothing in anaconda we can do in the most general case for OOM problems.
