Correct, because you have _not_ deleted the LV and VG info that is 
physically on the disk by doing this.

_Before_ you do 17, there should be that option right at the top of the 
main "manual partitioning" screen. It may be named slightly differently. 
You need to select that option and use the LVM setup menu to delete the 
LVs and VG. Doing that should really give you a clean starting position.

We'll try to reproduce the other issues at some point, but as we're 
focussing on the next release at the moment this may take some time.

Thanks for the additional info.
