Description of problem:
an exception is raised during 'Creating ext4 on /dev/mapper/fedora-root'
This happens only on bare-metal (tested on two desktops). In virtual machines everything seems to work.
Traceback (most recent call first):

target = ROOT_PATH + source

Have seen this on ASUS laptop trying to install x86_64 TC2 from USB stick.
Discussed at 2013-03-27 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-03-27/f19alpha-blocker-review-3.2013-03-27-16.01.log.txt . Accepted as a blocker per criterion "The installer must be able to complete an installation to a single disk using automatic partitioning." for multiple bare metal cases. bcl says it will be fixed in the next python-blivet build.
I have seen this also on virtual machines (qemu-kvm) when I set controller to SCSI. On virtual machines with IDE or Virito disks everything seems to work.
python-blivet 0.9 was included in TC3. Can someone confirm that this is fixed in TC3? Thanks.
Verified on Fedora 19 TC3.
then we can close it.
