Can you please explain in plain English how you arrived at that conclusion 
and what the patch you propose is supposed to do?
The problem here is that it we have very little opportunity to test 
this "in the wild" and thus need a solid analysis in order to commit it.

If you want to test this yourself, take a look at my post
which contains a test script that does what partman does in a simplified 
form. It still needs to be run inside the installer though.

I'll give your patch a try myself too.
