That looks like a valuable data point.

Can you provide a /var/log/partman log for that (gzipped!)?
You can probably use the "Save debug logs" menu option to get that file to 
your regular machine.

I've tried doing the same with a FAT partition as first partition, but I 
cannot reproduce any problems with that: the FAT partition remains FAT.
Please, if possible, keep your setup for further debugging.

Cheers,
