#507653 describes the same situation, but you give more detail.
I also ran into problems making partitions manually with partman when
the hard drive had an existing RAID device. I don't know if my
problem was related to swap, but in any case I had the impression that
the kernel still saw the old RAID device after after I generated a new
partition layout with different RAID devices on top.
