duplicate entries in custom partitioning

screenshot with multiple entries in the list
Description of problem:
Testing F19 RC2, with custom partitioning I wanted to save my current partition layout (sda1 (/boot), sda2 (LUKS(LVM(swap,/home,/root))), and I set mount points, and checked format for every partition, and I wanted to change my settings to save (not reformat) my /home partition, it was accepted, and I unchecked "Reformat", moved to another entry, it applied but removed already set "Mount Point: /home" to empty field (another bug???), so I typed it again "/home" and moved to another entry, it applied my settings and created second "/home" entry in partition list "New Fedora 19 Installation". After this I tried it again, and playing with "Reformat" check/uncheck (it unsets "Mount Point:" (another bug???) and setting new mount point again creates new entry in the list 3. later I played with this and created multiple entries (copies). I didn't tested how it will affect installation, it looks like all copies have same settings (If I change one it affects others).
Maybe this happens if other settings are changed, but I didn't tested them!!!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-19.30.12-1.fc19 (F19 RC2)
Steps to Reproduce:
Changing partition settings (or some settings), creates multiple entries in new installation list
Changing partition settings (or some settings), doesn't creates multiple entries in new installation list (just updates existing one)
Does this problem still occur with the released versions of F19 or F20? If so, can you attach the log files from /tmp to this bug?
Sorry! I wasn't able to do it on time, I tested it now again with F20 DVD (final), it is still possible to get multiple entries in the list.
I formatted all partitions except one I used for /home on old system, and set mount point for it, then I checked the format checkbox it disappeared from bottom list and it was only in top list for new fedora install (which is OK). Then I tried to change it again, and unchecked the format checkbox, then it loses mount point (resets all fields I think? I didn't tried to change to different filesystem, encryption, ...), and I set it again to be new '/home' mount point without formatting (format checkbox unchecked) and I think it shows up twice then, and after few repeats (format (checked/unchecked), re-entering mount point without format ..., I'm able to create multiple entries for the same mountpoint in new install)
I'll add three different screenshots and log files.

Sorry for the mess I did! I still have all /tmp files saved if some important file is missing here I can upload it.
As far as I can tell this is working correctly in Fedora 21.
