Bug#610282: preseed: partman-lvm/confirm boolean true does not suppress "Before the Logical Volume ..."

Quoting Pete Kazmier (pete@kazmier.com):
> Package: debian-installer
> Version: 20101127
> Severity: normal
> Tags: d-i
> When using a preconfiguration file to automate the installation of a Debian
> squeeze system, the preseed statement:
>         d-i partman-lvm/confirm boolean true
> does not suppress the following message as expected:
>         Before the Logical Volume Manager can be configured, the current
>         partitioning scheme has to be written to disk.  These changes cannot
>         be undone.
>         After the Logical Volume Manager is configured, no additional changes
>         to the partitioning scheme of disks containing physical volumes are
>         allowed during the installation. Please decide if you are satisfied

CC'ing Colin Watson, who introduced this confirm_nooverwrite template
back in April 2010. He may have more clues than me, whether this
belongs to the installation guide, who'd need to be updated or if this
might be a bug in partman-lvm.

I don't see this partman-lvm/confirm_nooverwrite being used anywhere
in partman-lvm....it is just registered in partman-lvm init script.
