Bug#573891: kFreeBSD partitioning fails

That's normal. stderr often stays buffered until you exit a component 
(return to the main menu).

So that's not actually needed.

That's probably expected on freebsd (but should be handled cleaner).

This is the real error.

From that log:
parted_server: Read command: CHANGE_FILE_SYSTEM
parted_server: Opening outfifo
parted_server: partition_with_id(26740385280-30005821439)
parted_server: Filesystem freebsd-ufs not found, let's see if it is a flag
parted_server: Bad file system or flag type: freebsd-ufs
parted_server: Line 1723. CRITICAL ERROR!!!  EXITING.

Yep. That's the cause.

Looks like something the freebsd porters (CCed) will need to look into.
But it's a bit strange as ufs has been the default file system for freebsd 
since Aug 2009.
