Anaconda "Create Custom Layout" unhandled exception

Over the last week or so I've had good luck with pxeboot rawhide
installs using custom disk layouts.  But yesterday I changed my office
machine to an MSI P43 NEO3 and Anaconda was stumped.

Different versions of fdisk showed slightly different partitions.
After several attempts to install Rawhide, I gave up and installed
OpenSUSE, which installed without complaint.  But Rawhide
still couldn't hack custom layout.

I tried reverting to the "last known good" Rawhide from last year
(anaconds but custom layout still got an unhandled exception.

Finally I swapped hard drives and used Win XP to clear partitions
and install Windows on a 50G partition.  The current Rawhide was
able to install using the "replace linux" option.

I know the details here are rather sketchy.  I suspect the problem
may be related to the motherboard and the apparent presence of
two partition tables on the same drive.  And the problem <so far>
is appearing only on this motherboard.
