Bug#602568: squeeze-di-beta1 installer: partman hang

Now Squeeze is installed into the notepad and I can test the parted 2.3-3 that is available from it. No problem without partition of course, bt the surprise is that it also have no issue with a FAT12 partition:

fdisk -l /dev/sdb

Disk /dev/sdb: 5 MB, 5242880 bytes
1 heads, 10 sectors/track, 1024 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 10 * 512 = 5120 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1               2        1024        5115    1  FAT12

parted /dev/sdb print
Model: disk2go PURE II (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdb: 5243kB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos

Number  Start  End     Size    Type     File system  Flags
 1      5120B  5243kB  5238kB  primary

But from http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/libparted0-udeb it seem that this is this 2.3-3 version that is used into the installer. I feel lost in doubt. I rebooted and restarted the installer, only to find that his parted still abort the same way.

Now the question is why the parted from the installer react so bad to something that do not hurt the parted from squeeze, since there should be compiled from the same code base ?

Or is there something missing in the picture ?
