Default "Invalid Entry for Partition Size" when "Fill all available space" selected

The following is from the IBM bugzilla that I am looking at:



I am testing RHEL5.1 GA. When creating the file system, I use "Fill all

available space" to use up all the free space. The problem is that when I clear

out the value for "Size (MB)" and then click ok, anaconda asks me to provide a

value. But this value doesn't make any sense to this option.

I have noticied that this is not a problem in the graphical installation because that entry box keeps getting reset to 1. Rather than attempt that same behavior, I just set that value to 1 if there was an error in the number when "Fill maximum size" and "Fill all available" are selected.
