The same bug applies to lenny as well. On Friday I received a new
laptop that had 200GB drive, I partitioned it as small boot partition
and big lvm group. I then added 3 partitions on lvm group and same
error happen. Available size that screens tells you is "160GB" trying
to make it 155GB partition and you get the error. The screen is still
showing or calculating the wrong size. Actual partition size is 160GB
= less then 160 GIB, which then caused me to guess what size should I
put it to get 95% Is it 150, 140,143? ..etc Really annoying.

I don't know if this only happens in lvm group or everybody else is
getting this error and everybody ignores it.?
