It depends (or should depend) on what is already in the disk area you are 
using. If you have used that disk area before, even if it is with a newly 
created LV, then the installer would see partitions so try to fit the 
install into the (possibly empty) space that was still free. clearpart 
--linux tells it to throw away any existing linux partitions. If the area 
really was blank then it looks like there was an anaconda bug.
