I tried to reproduce this problem by creating a 63-aligned
partition and running the installer, asking partman to use
the entire disk.  It generated 2048-aligned partitions as
expected.  I suppose this bug is fixed, or perhaps it only
happens under more strange circumstances that I can't
reproduce anymore.

I wouldn't worry about it then.
