What steps did you take that resulted in this problem? Is it at all reproducible?
for me it is reproducible.
I'm working with LVM and the SWAP partition is also on an LVM volume.
The problem occurs when there is already a SWAP partition on LVM and I select this and go to "Edit" and close the dialog without doing any changes.
When I then go to "Next" the bug occur.
But when I go to "Edit" and say format, it's working.
I hope this helps.
This appears to be a duplicate of bug 723303. The difference is that in this case the device is formatted as swap space while the other was a filesystem. This should be resolved in the F16 beta.
