FC7T4 Not Seeing Pre-existing software raid arrays

Am I the only person who is having this problem with FC7T3 & 4 and 
network installs of development?

Clean install attempts on a test machine that is currently running 
rawhide just fine fail since anaconda does not see all pre-existing raid 
arrays and those it does see are classified as having foreign file 
systems, not ext3.  I have to copy /etc/mdadm.conf to the proposed boot 
drive and go to console 2 at the beginning of the install to start the 
arrays, then lvm vgchange the LVs.  Only then does the partitioner in 
anaconda see all of the arrays and the LVs.  Install works fine after that.
