Thanks. I found the same thing about going between the destination
menu and the hub, it's never quite clear what you're diong or what the
next step will do.

There is also (and this is far from obvious) a delay after getting
sent back to the hub during which the destination is flagged as
needing attention before it realises it's been done (I'd guess
anaconda rereads the partition table at that point). I'm not sure it
reports "Error checking storage configuration" until then though. So
afraid after all this I can only confirm you're probably right there's
a bug in the installer.

If you don't mind posting the output of an all-discs 'fdisk -l' then
I'm happy to put it in as a bug if you don't have a BZ account, it
might help get it fixed in the next release. Though better if you
filed it yourself as I wont be able to provide any follow-up
