Description of problem:

I tried the option to manually edit the size of the home partition in the installer in order not to use all available hard drive space. But after editing the field and pressing apply, the size in partition was reduced to a very small amount (in my case ~39MB). I tried all of the following strings "10G", "10 GB", "10000MB", "10000000000". None worked, and the size was reset to 39MB. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Fedora 19 Beta.

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run installer
2. Choose to manually modify the partitions.
3. Enter "10GB" for the size of the home partition and press apply.

Actual results:

The size is changed to 39MB.

Expected results:

The size should remain "10G".
