Thanks for spotting this issue. There are actually two problems here.

The lvm component of partman was not really using the debconf protocol 
correctly. This did not show up in the regular frontend, but it does 
result in the behavior you saw in the graphical frontend.
I've fixed this in SVN.

The second problem _is_ in the graphical frontend. It turns out that the 
value of a question is changed even if <GoBack> is selected. In this 
respect it behaves different from the regular frontend.
Cloning your report to cdebconf-gtk-udeb for this issue.

Cheers,
FJP
