  that doesn't sound right, as i had a space error even when i
specified a 100G root filesystem, which would have been *more* than
big enough for a DVD-based install, no?

  i'm willing to believe that this has been fixed, but if you're
taking the position that the error was merely because /usr wasn't
being added to the total, you might want to check that code again.
