Yes, this is subtle.

See this ^

Parted is detecting a raw file system (hence loopback), because it detected
a file system with signatures in the appropriate place.  So, it's like
running "parted /dev/sda3", or whatever.

The thing is, parted always looks for "real" partition tables first.   For
some reason, it hasn't detected your Sun partition table.  The Sun support
is quite new (a month or so), so perhaps you have a strange table.

Could you please send it to me?

        # dd if=/dev/sda of=sun-parttable bs=512 count=4
        # gzip sun-parttable
