Well well, I finally happen to have another problem with this new 
version, setup-storage prints the following sentence and then quits quickly:

Executing: mdadm --examine --scan --verbose -c partitions
Previous partitions overflow begin of preserved partition /dev/sda2

I tried several values for the /local volume, but always get the same 
message. Here's the debug format.log, which happens to be pretty short.
