I think I've discovered the problem. *Sometimes* I'll be asked if I want
to activate the logical volumes. It seems to happen when I proceed
directly without any "exploring", that is without changing my mind about
which option to select next and without backing up to redo something.
*IFF* that question is asked and I answer 'yes' then the logical volumes
will be presented for formating, etc.
