CentOS 6 installer shows partitioning error for root partition

Came across a funny "bug" today, while manually partitioning a CentOS 6 server:

Your / partition is less than 4958 MB which is lower than recommended for a normal CentOS install.

The installer then doesn't continue. This is not really bad, as it prevents the user to install everything into a single / (root) partition which will be too small.

It doesn't make sense though, when separate partitions were already set up, as in my case:

CentOS installer partitioning errors

This is clearly a bug in the installer but I haven't found a reference to it yet.
