Dealing with alignment stuff has been introduced in partman-base 140 and enhanced in later versions. If you were using a weekly built netinst image (that includes d-i alpha1 released in Feb. 2010), you may be using an earlier version. Can you try the latest *netboot* daily builds from http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer? Installing squeeze with these should use the latest partman-base and give what you expect (at least I think: I know nothing to these things, I'm just guessing from changelogs).
