Bug#247182: partman-lvm: Won't create VG during install

Package: partman-lvm
Severity: important

-- System Information:
Debian Release: testing/unstable
  APT prefers testing
  APT policy: (500, 'testing')
Architecture: i386 (i686)
Kernel: Linux 2.4.25-1-386

System is a Dell Poweredge 600sc, with IDE Raid.  

Sorry for any errors in this, I'm new to Debian, and especially the 
installer.  Using the beta 4 of the installer, i'm attempting to 
configure LVM.  I set up the general partitions, no problem.  Size them 
as appropriate.  Want to work with LVM, to see how it handles, so I 
create a PV, it's now designated as a LVM, etc- no problem. I believe 
all this is partman.

I then go to configure LVM.  it writes the map, etc.  I hit VG.  Create 
VG. Systems offers me a box to select PV.  It lets me select with 
spacebar, but doesn't let me move to continue or go back.  only way out 
of this is to hit ESC.  I do, and it says name the VG.  This does not 
seem to be the correct behavior, since once I do, it then leaves me at 
the VG menu.  No VG is created...

I might just be doing this wrong.. but it would seem that it was 
nonobvious if it is working ok.
