What does improperly nested mean: overlapping, or something else?

How to resolve this problem? According to fdisk the sda1 and sda3 partitions 
are _not_ overlapping:
Additionally, does the same warning have to be repeated so many times for every 
kernel entry???

It did not say they overlapped.  It said it found a partition table
inside sda3 which is improper given it is not an extended partition
(sda4 is).

I'm pretty sure that the warning message ``improperly nested'' really
is about partition nesting as discussed e.g. in [1].  It's not about
extended partitions.

But I agree that the problem at hand may come from this:

If so, then there is a chance that the first sector of sda3 contains
the old extended partition table, and grub probe might be detecting that.
