It was only one part of the bug. Remaining issues:

Trying to install openSUSE 10.2 on my home machine, it offered to format /home
partition, which was already ext3 formatted.

This suggestion is invalid on almost 100% of cases - most people with separate
/home want to save its contents after installation.

Logs placed to: ~sbrabec/var_log_YaST2_utx

Proposals to improve:

If /home (and maybe some others) partitions already caries linux-friendly
filesystem (ext*, xfs, reiser*), never offer formatting.

While formatting partitions to file system, which supports it, fill "Last
mounted on" entry to properly identify disc structure on next installation.

If more version of SuSE Linux is found in several partitions, the oldest one
should be scheduled to be overwritten.
