odd indeed.
usually problems like this happen if you have been doing block device
configuration (manually or through aif) before configuring them [again]
in AIF.  something stays "open" or something like that. (it should work 
if you use the rollback feature in aif though)

if you had the problem when doing the installation thing directly after
a fresh cd-rom boot, it would definitely be useful to have that logfile.
if `aif -p interactive -l -p` does not fail and /arch/setup does,
this might have something to do with the recent changes in the
logging/debugging code (although it seems unlikely from the error you
gave). some users have reporting /arch/setup not generating a logfile
