This is a known issue we have not yet gotten around to improve. Patches
Note that with the current version of the installer you can resolve this
by first selecting "manual partitioning", then selecting "configure LVM"
at the main partman screen and use the LVM menu to delete existing LVs
and VGs, and finally choose guided partitioning again.
The installer should probably show an overview of existing VGs and LVs
and ask for confirmation before deleting them.
