Bug report

Dear Parted developers,

Please note the following error message, which appeared on starting parted.

Assertion ((C * heads + H) * sectors + S == A) at disk_dos.c:596 in function
probe_partition_for_geom() failed.

The device in question is a Kingston DataTraveler II, a new 1GB USB2.0 memory 

After receiving this error I carried on regardless, and everything seemed to 
be normal except for the error message, which re-occurred after every 
operation. As soon as I resized he original FAT16 partition  (to make room 
for a Linux partition) the error message stopped occurring, and the memory 
stick now seems to be functioning normally.
