The same definition dies on a blank disk -- with the following backtrace

anaconda exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/storage/devices.py", line 2048, in _setSize
raise ValueError("not enough free space in volume group")
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/storage/partitioning.py", line 1163, in growLVM
lv.size += grow_amounts[lv.name]
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/storage/partitioning.py", line 197, in doAutoPartition
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 205, in moveStep
rc = stepFunc(self.anaconda)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 128, in gotoNext
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1339, in nextClicked
ValueError: not enough free space in volume group

Is the LV definition invalid for some reason? Is LV expected to work?
