------- Additional Comments From michal harddata com  2008-05-26 14:30 EST -------
I tried the same experiment with parted-1.8.8-5.fc9, and
sfdisk and fdisk from util-linux-ng-2.14-0.1.fc10 using a file
with a dump of two sectors of a disk I am using right now.
Results are as follows:
  - sfdisk dumps a table although it complains "cannot seek to ..."
    if an extended partition is present and further "logical"
    partitions are skipped.
  - fdisk remains silent like in comment #7
  - parted complains "Error: Can't have a partition outside the disk!"

The same thing with a file from an attachment (id=158322) produces
four primary partitions with sfdisk but parted comes with "unrecognised
disk label" for a change (even if sfdisk accepted it).  Would not help
much with anaconda, wouldn't it?

The difference is that I was running 'sfdisk -d ...' to have an
output from the original report and you have 'sfdisk -l ...'.

So, if it is not feasible to find from available data what makes
parted unhappy then one would have to look at original data from the
whole disk from well over a year ago and I do not have that anymore.
