Description of problem:

currently running F17-alpha, and tried to do a manual partition.  Selected as a filing system on disk partitioning tool [manually setting up virtual machine] and anaconda crashed.  This system is running under Virtualbox 4.1.8

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Selected Basic Storage Type
2. Initialised disk
3. named machine f17-tester
4. sorted out the root password
5. Selected Create custom Layout
6. Create Standard Partition
7. selected mount point: /boot
8. selected file system type: btrfs
9. selected size: 500M
11. Pressed DEBUG and Anaconda crashed out to command
Actual results:

Expected results:

Either accept btrfs can be used for /boot or not....
