Mine were
* preupgrade running out of diskspace on / when trying to fill 
/var/cache/yum (my "/"'s tend to be minimized/small)

* anaconda failing during reboots due not being able to process fstab 
correctly (FC11's anaconda misparses fstab and is unable able to process 
bind-mounts nor nfs-mounts).

* anaconda's depsolving failed when upgrading an FC10 + FC10-updates 
system due to NEVR issues.
