I think this is fixed by 853977, given that we are hung up on a pvremove and the patch from that bug adds arguments to pvremove.

Unfortunately, that's a private bug.  However the important thing to note is that it's in modified and anaconda-18.8 should be tne build on master that'll have the fix.  So, post-alpha.
