Bug#418124: debian-installer: Does not recognise pre-existing LVM LVs

Package: debian-installer
Version: RC2
Severity: normal

I downloaded the netinst CD this morning from the above URL.

I was upgrading a Fedora machine to Debian and I wanted to use the same LVs.
The root and swap LVs had the same size requirements and /boot was right,
so all that should have been needed was to run mkfs and mkswap.

However d-i didn't recognise the "root" and "swap" LVs, I had to go to the
LVM configuration, delete them, and then create new LVs (of the same size and
name) before I could do the install I desired.
