Apparently it only lets you change the label is the partition is marked to be formatted. Probably because the tools in the installer are only able to do so at format time. If you choose to keep the data on the parition, it won't let you change the label.
mkreiserfs is pretty fast, so I am not sure whether it was run. But I am sure that "keep data" was not set when I came back to partman. Why shouldn't it format the partition again? Regards Harri
