cfdisk and BSD partitions

I have a (primary) BSD partition containing one or more BSD partitions.

Running cfdisk during the install process fails telling something about a
bad partition table. The following dialog of dselect asks, if the partition
table should be rewritten and sets the default button to <YES>!!! I nearly
killed all of my data!

(Yes, one should read, what he confims, but having installed Debian so many
times, I'm used to the fact, that the default answers are ok and I have a
very high hit rate throught the dselect-menus. Fortunately, after cfdisk, I
read a bit before comfirming.)
