Re: [PATCH] RHEL 5.3 #468431 - assure consistency of VG to be removed

The only thing that scares me about this patch is the chance that anaconda will traceback on one of those vgremove or lvremove where otherwise it would have continued on its marry way.

OTOH, if we fail on either one of those we will probably see some other issue further on.  And its probably a good idea to see the traceback sooner than later.  From this point of view it seems OK to me.
