No, didn't help, when i created a 100GB partition ignoring the last 250GB or
so. What is furthermore strange is that parted doesn't list the partitions by
hand in d-i, while they are ok in the installed system, and they are also ok
in the partman menu, and also show up after a reboot.

Provided are the logs, well, i added the 'set -x' only after discovering the
problem in the first run, and then redoing the RAID thingy, but i hope this is
ok. Tell me if you need the log with the set -x of the full partitioning
