gparted in the amd64 alias 64-bit versions are worse than the i386 alias
32-bit version, that I am running most of the time (because I have
middle-aged and old computers).
After some more testing, I found that the amd64 versions are really
acting up: in Xenial but even worse in Trusty.
See the attached screenshot in the bug report #1622313, comment #5
(trusty) and comments #6-7 (xenial).
