Bug#412624: partman-auto: all files in one partition fails on 1.2TB disk

Package: partman-auto
Version: 66
Severity: important

I tested today's daily netinst build of i386 on a machine w/ a 1.2TB
logical disk and found that it silently fails to calculate partition

I selected "Partion Disks"->"Guided Partitioning"->"Guided - use entire disk"

Selected my one option:
  SCSI.CCISS (-,0,0) (cciss/c0d0) - 1.2 TB Compaq Smart Array 

And "All files in one partition".

It then presents the overview menu[1], but apparently nothing was

If I let it use the whole disk but split up the partitions, it comes
up with some reasonable-looking calculations.

I'll look into this more later this week - I've not yet debugged any
of the partitioning code so helpful suggestions are welcome :) fyi,
this also exists in sarge installers.
