I guess this is my fault; I submitted a bug but didn't really check the  
result (I don't need cfdisk _that_ often ;-)).

I do have a really old, self-patched cfdisk (probably even still a.out)  
that works, so I'm quite certain that my suggestion in the bug report was  
right. I'll have a look at the sources this weekend and will probably  
submit a diff, unless it's no longer needed. (It really _is_ only a matter  
of casting right so no bits get lost. This is "long long" math. Or just  
use an Alpha with 64 bit ints ;-))

I can easily test this; after all, I have two 4.1 GB disks :-)

MfG Kai
