parted 1.5.4 crashes gnumach

I have tried parted 1.5.4 in the Hurd running the latest GNU Mach package.
I run "check 1" to check the first partition, which is a FAT.  It really
had a bad impact:  I got completely random crashes (obviously some corruption)
in the kernel, often during the check, but also later.  This happened when
running it as a normal user or as root.

What is so special about parted that it brings down gnumach to its knees so
easily?  What interfaces in the Hurd and GNU Mach are used by parted, and in
what way?  It seems there is something unusual that really disturbs it.
