Peter and Tom, and others who've experienced bug#492154 (Partition map
has no partition map entry).  

Chris Lumens feels confident in a fix but would like some feedback.  If
you have some time, please download the latest rawhide boot.iso [1] and
attempt to reproduce the bug.  You can pass along your findings directly
in the bug report at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=492154,
or on the list here.

Thanks,
James
