The installer seems to have done that, yes. I thought the installer's 
behavior was pretty weird to let me assign / to a volume first, and 
then tell me later that that's a no-no. :)

It's certainly not lvm's fault if the installer screwed up a bit, so 
yes, this bug probably can be closed -- or reassigned to the 
installer. I cannot exactly list the steps I did to cause this, 
though, except for trying to define a volume group including /, then 
being told by the installer that that's not allowed, therefore 
redefining and reassigning the partitions, and proceeding with the 
installation. I used the daily build of June 4th, so this may have 
been fixed in the meantime.
