This seems strange, supposedly partman should call ped_partition_set_system()
to set the partition type. But i guess since it does the ext3 creation
externally or something, it may or may not be called. I am not familiar with 
partman code though.

Anyway, what arch are you on (x86 i guess), and was that partition previously
a Plan 9 partition or something ?
