Bug#596027: partman-base: gpt labels: partitions are not being properly aligned
Tested with partman in d-i daily build image from 2010-09-07.
When one forces a GPT label, the partitions are apparently created
without any alignment, instead of "optimal" aligment.
I tried using the "guided partitioner", as well as trying to do it
manually. I used gdisk to check the starting sector of each partition.
The same operations on a msdos label work well and align to 1MiB.
The partitions were created on a virtual-io disk, under a libvirt VM
(kvm, latest stuff in squeeze).
