Blocker nomination apparently didn't really happen: doing it.

Thanks. I can only add blockers to bugs I created, so I CC'ed you ... :-)
- boot TC2 live CD
- Install to Hard Drive
- Select Czech language, press Continue

Obviously there are better translations on live images than on DVD's.
Patch posted to anaconda-patches.
[f18-branch/master] [PATCH] Encode unicode strings returned by pytz.country_timezones() (#887236)
The DVD could be a missing translation file:
Bug 875846 - [i18n] "ON" and "OFF" not translated in switches on DVD (gtk30.mo not on DVD)

anaconda-18.37.4-1.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
We need Live to verify this. Waiting for TC4. Setting back to ON_QA.
you don't need to wait for a compose. Just boot TC3 and yum update anaconda before running it.
Or if you can't wait for the build to show up in a repo and enjoy typing: :-)
# yum -y install koji
# koji download-build --arch=x86_64 373778
# yum -y update *.rpm
I paste this info into a gedit window next to my VM window, so that I don't have to remember the build id:
Information for build anaconda-18.37.5-1.fc18
I tested the fix for this, it works. Reproduced the crash with 18.37.3 and it goes away with 18.37.4.
