The disks were not being partitioned at all, because apparently the sum
of all maximum sizes had to be larger than the size of the disk. The
documentation at the link below mentions that "there must be at least
one partition with high maximal size so that the whole free space can be
used." However, it does not make it clear that this is required for the
partitioning to work at all.
