RE: anaconda KeyError exception in %pre section



Figured out what caused the error message.  If the KS file is changed by one
of hte %pre scripts then the error is generated.  I know that anaconda
rereads the ks.cfg file if is is modified.  I'm not clear why there would be
an error though, because the change is minimal.
