and this is possibly related to the bug  maybe solved with parted 1.6.12:

I have seen quite a few reports in both Fedora and Debian world about
people having problems with their dual-boot install after an upgrade
(or an install) to a 2.6-based distro. See for examples:

Since I dual-boot at home, and I need a corrupted partition table as
much as I need a root canal procedure, I have been avoiding upgrading
my home PC (currently on Fedora 1) until this is solved.
