Perhaps I would have noticed more if I hadn't tried the install at 3AM :)
It did create the bootstrap partition, but 2GB (vs. the required 800k) is
definitely overkill, and it has to be reordered (not physically) to be the
first partition.

What I meant about being forced to use lvm was that the installer
proceeded right into the lvm configuration right after partitioning, which
seemed a bit strange at the time, but perhaps wasn't since it had no
useful partitions.
