Bug#262868: no 'FREE SPACE' in newly initialized disklabel

Package: partman-partitioning
Version: 24
Severity: important

I have two disks on my Sun SPARCstation 10, sda and sdb. sda is a 1 GB
drive which I chose to initialize with a fresh disklabel for the
purposes of testing.


  x        SCSI1 (0,3,0) (sda) - 1.0 GB SEAGATE ST31200N SUN1.05  a         x
  x        SCSI1 (0,4,0) (sdb) - 2.1 GB SEAGATE ST32550N          a         x
  x        >      #2  48.1 MB B f ext3       /boot                a         x
  x        >      #4   1.9 GB   f ext3       /                    a         x
  x        >      #1  98.4 MB   f swap       swap                 a         x

Notce how there is no "FREE SPACE' available for sda. I created a new
disklabel on sdb and as you can see I was able to use free space there.

This used to work...
