Anaconda doesn't tell what is wrong on partitioning

Error checking storage configuration screenshot
Description of problem:
When incorrect partitioning is specified, anaconda allows to click on "Finish partitioning" and doesn't complain about anything. Then, in hub, there is only information "Error checking storage configuration" which doesn't tell what is wrong and can be confusing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get to partitioning and do manual configuration
2. Set / to be "vfat" for example
3. click on "Finish partitioning"
Anaconda should tell (like on Fedora 17 did) what is wrong with the partitioning layout.

Yeah, this is just a difference in the new installer design. You'll need to revisit the storage spoke and then it should be fairly obvious what the problem is.
We are trying to prevent people from getting locked into spokes, and to allow people to do other stuff while checks are running. That's why you are sent back to the hub while storage sanity check runs, and why you have to go back into the spoke to see the detailed errors later.
