Ugh, this is fiddly to fix. When I tried just allowing the management of
flags on any partition, new partitions seemed to spuriously show up with
the boot flag set on MSDOS disklabels; I think this is probably gparted
hasn't quite initialised the libparted partition structure yet and the
0x80 (active/bootable) bit happens to be set in the relevant byte
somewhere on the disk. Fixing this hurts my brain.

Tollef, I know this is a "later" bug, but would you object terribly if I
just left this to the implementation of ubiquity-advanced-partitioner,
leaving it milestoned as "later" just in case that specification has to
be deferred again?
