Clearly that's not the case here. I have no idea to be honest. There is a comment with the functions VIRTUAL_RESIZE_PARTITION and GET_VIRTUAL_RESIZE_RANGE that says they "are undocumented and should disappear", but I have no idea beyond that. Could it be that a virtual partition is one that has been created or modified, but has not yet been committed to disk?

This new patch works again. I've asked Colin Watson if he can review your patch. Within the D-I team he currently has the best grasp of what happens in this area of partman. Thanks again.
