Well, I must have been blind:  I just didn't find anything in the
"manual partitioning" screen that looked like it would allow me to
create lvm volumes.  But I must admit that I did not read that part of
the installation guide in advance (and didn't have an other connected
machine at hand at the moment).

"I must have been blind" is obviously not a bug in the installer.

Yes, that's also right, thanks.
