In the sysinst partition setup I had this layout:
600 MB ... /
120 MB ... swap
0 MB ... /usr
I selected /usr and pressed <Enter> and the default size was . I entered 0, and found that / shrunk by 128. I repeated this pattern twice with /usr, with the same result of shrinking / by the default of . Eventually it causes an underflow of / and a very large number of MB for / that doesn't make sense for the size of the disk.
Enter a 0 value in an entry that has a default () partition size, and an existing size of 0.
