Yes. I've tested amiga-fdisk and amiga-fdisk-bf again now. amiga-fdisk
allowed me to delete and create partitions, while amiga-fdisk-bf did not.
Looks like -bf has trouble parsing keyboard input; readline trouble? I had
a quick look at the sources, but it seems I need to familiarize myself with
the packaging system first...

Another thing, amiga-fdisk segfaulted while toggling the mount flag, while
-fb ignored the change.
