I haven't been ab;e to use sfdisk without "--force" for a while. You
even have to use it to apply the unedited sfdisk dump of my previous
email... It must be because sfdisk is still trying to to use cylinders
as units.

Reporting "I can't recreate the Ubuntu installer's disk layout without
using sfdisk and --force" is unlikely to be considered much of an
issue by anyone.
