I also forgot to mention, that this happens on Fedora 19 Beta RC2.
Ok, and anaconda ignores btrfs if selected too.
This looks like a good candidate for Beta FE at least. You could argue it as a Beta blocker, but it's a close thing.
Patch posted to anaconda-patches list.
Okay, let's at least consider this one as a blocker. Criteria:
"When using the dedicated installer images, the installer must be able to complete an installation using the text, graphical and VNC installation interfaces."
"When using the guided partitioning flow, the installer must be able to...Complete an installation using any combination of disk configuration options it allows the user to select"
We're in the guided flow in the text installer, it offers these options, but doesn't honor them.
Patch pushed, commit e80477fcada25d5fed609a902107759e4ce0d16c
Discussed at 2013-05-20 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-05-20/f19beta-blocker-review-7.2013-05-20-16.07.log.txt . Accepted as a Beta blocker per rationale in comment #11.
anaconda-19.29-1.fc19 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 19.
Tested on Fedora Beta RC3 netinst with anaconda 19.29-1, it works - anaconda correctly creates native, LVM and btrfs partitions when selected.
still fixed in RC4.
will this stay fixed in rc5?

It's tough to say, really--in a perfect world, yes.
There isn't going to be an RC5.
anaconda 19.30 is stable, closing.
