This was considered a minor bug, so never spent time in fixing it:
should i do it now ?
If you have time, yes please.
I do consider this a serious bug as it leads to unpredictable behavior
when compared to the newt frontend.
We have to take into consideration that most scripts will be written and
tested mainly in the newt frontend, so structural differences in behavior
as in this case should be avoided.
Sorry for not judging your earlier bug report correctly, but after being
confronted with this concrete bug report I do think it is essential to
get this fixed. There is no way to know what other bugs there may still
be because other scripts make the same assumptions as the LVM script did.
I just sent a reply with a patch for this bug to the BTS, but my mail
did not hit d-boot, pherhaps because of patch size.
