On my tests with the attachment in from comment #1:
parted:
[root dhcp-lab-115 Misc]# parted /dev/loop0 print
Error: Unable to open /dev/loop0 - unrecognised disk label.

fdisk:

As you can see non of these generate the behavior described in comment #0.  IMO
the partition table had some sort of issue (like expressed in comment #0) but
cannot be reproduced with the file that is attached.

Can you reproduce the behavior with the file as expressed in comment #0?
