Bug#689975: debian-installer: creates partition tables which are unreadable by cfdisk

Package: debian-installer
Version: 20110106+squeeze4
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I recently installed an amdt64 machine with the 6.0.6 CD. The
resulting disk layout was such that cfdisk refused to run on
that disk thereafter, giving this error message:

FATAL ERROR: Bad primary partition 2: Partition ends in the final partial cylinder
			   Press any key to exit cfdisk

sfdisk and fdisk had similar complaints, but did not refuse to run.

Methinks the installer should create partition tables that are not
considered to be broken by the other partitioning programs.

Kind regards,
