Hi Ian and Alberto,
I created the bug report #1622313, "gparted does not recognize the
iso9660 file system in cloned Ubuntu USB boot drives"

Please mark 'affects me too', if it affects you. It would also be
valuable to check in other versions of Ubuntu, particularly in Trusty
alias 14.04.x LTS, because many people will install fresh Xenial systems
from old Trusty systems.
