Subject: sysinst MBR partition bug on fresh install?

For reasons I won't bother to explain, I tried to do a fresh install of
-current (from Friday's source tree) on a disk with a Windows partition.
As best I can tell, it was skipping the step about asking about MBR
partitions, or asking me if I wanted to use part or all of the disk for
NetBSD -- it went straight to the NetBSD partition dialog. Maybe the
MBR partition stuff came later, but it listed the entire capacity of
the drive as available; it didn't subtract out the Windows partition.
Can anyone else confirm this?
