Kickstart bugs??



I found two things that don't go as I would expect, installing RH with a kickstart file. I used the following kickstart configuration file:
----------------------------------------------
install
url --url http://192.168.70.2/rh90/i386
lang en_US.UTF-8
langsupport --default en_US.UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8
keyboard us
mouse none
skipx
network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp
rootpw testing
firewall --disabled
authconfig --enableshadow --enablemd5
timezone --utc Europe/Amsterdam
bootloader --location=none
clearpart --all --initlabel
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100 --ondisk=hda
part / --fstype ext3 --size=700 --ondisk=hda
part swap --size=128 --grow --maxsize=256 --ondisk=hda
%packages
%post
----------------------------------------------
As a result on the installed system I got the following anaconde-ks.cfg
----------------------------------------------
# Kickstart file automatically generated by anaconda.
install
lang en_US.UTF-8
langsupport --default en_US.UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8
keyboard us
mouse generic3ps/2 --device psaux
skipx
network --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp
rootpw testing
firewall --disabled
authconfig --enableshadow --enablemd5
timezone --utc Europe/Amsterdam
bootloader --location=partition
# The following is the partition information you requested
# Note that any partitions you deleted are not expressed
# here so unless you clear all partitions first, this is
# not guaranteed to work
#clearpart --all
#part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100 --ondisk=hda
#part / --fstype ext3 --size=700 --ondisk=hda
#part swap --size=128 --grow --maxsize=256 --ondisk=hda

I used a really empty harddisk to install on ( I did: "dd if=/dev/zero bs=1024k count=10 of=/dev/hda").
* Although I did not want to install a bootloader, "clearpart --all --initlabel", kickstart did install the grub bootloader on the system.
* I also told kickstart not to install a mouse, "mouse none", but the autogenerated ks-file on the newly installed system has a mouse configuration line "mouse generic3ps/2 --device psaux". This means a mouse is installed, right??
Are these bugs I should file to bugzilla??
