Unfortunatelly that's true. We started to work on ext3 support for
parted and then we won't have this problem anymore but I'm not sure
we'll be able to make it in time for etch.

'cause of that I offer my help to fix autopartkit for new parted
library and help someone to maintain it while we can't drop it.
