F17 lorax update generates uninstallable anaconda media

Description of problem:
Running pungi on an updated F17 system with lorax-17.26-1.fc17.x86_64 generates an install DVD where anaconda won't recognize any image type and runs into a Python exception at the second screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This patch seems to solve this problem:
Please fix the F17 lorax, as pungi can't be used anymore without this manual fix now.

Eventually this bug (and duplicates) also will hit the problem that you must exclude systemd-44-8.fc17 and systemd-sysv-44-8.fc17 because of a bug in that version. Supposedly systemd-186 and above for Fedora 18 contain the fix, but there has been no backport (about 4 weeks so far). After that, some people run into grub2-install not present because the .ks file omitted "@anaconda-tools". See the thread "F17 updates broke anaconda PNG image handling" beginning July 24 in email@example.com.
[Yes, some of this is redundant, but it may help those who wish to make progress while various pieces are not yet working.]
lorax-17.27-1.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
