Can't put a BIOS boot partition below 2048

I used to be able to throw a BIOS boot partition into my GPT  covering sectors 

The actual OS partition starts at 2048 and is all nicely aligned as it should 

Combined with a hybrid MBR, this gives grub somewhere to dump itself so I can 
boot on non-EFI BIOSes.

Now fdisk won't let me do it and I can't seem to find any force flags to tell 
it to leave me alone.

Unless I'm missing something, this seems like a bug.

Thanks!  -Tyson
