  as a quick followup, i grabbed my f11 beta x86_64 dvd, an old
gateway laptop with a 95G drive, repartitioned the default LVM layout
thusly:

  /	75G
  /usr	18G

and got an error that i still needed 2879MB of free space.  so i'm
guessing that what happened is that the erroneous space calculation
code would *recognize* a separate /usr logical volume, but always come
up with a calculation of it having zero space.  does that make sense?

in other words, the instant you created a separate /usr LV, it didn't
matter what size you made it, its size was treated as zero and you
were screwed.
