Just recieved the included bug report ...

Seems that the disklabel type is being incorrectly listed as bsd, I
don't know why. Also, partition 2 is really ext2, but is being detected
as linux-swap - I believe others have also experienced this problem. Is
it fixed in 1.4.18?

Also, partition 4 (which is part of a md device) is being detected as
ext2. I assume that this is either the first device of a raid 0
(striping) md volume, or part of a raid 1 (mirroring) md device, which
would explain an ext2 superblock being at the start of the disk. There's
probably not much that can be done to address this for raid 1 stuff, as
it should look just like a single partition AFAIK, but there would be
issues in the former case (ie. raid 0 - the superblock may be on the
first disk, but the filesystem is striped across 2 or more disks) ... is
there any way to address this "issue"?

X-Reportbug-Version: 1.23

Package: parted
Version: 1.4.17-1
Severity: normal

parted shows my disk like this:
Disk label type: bsd
Minor    Start       End     Filesystem  Flags
1          1.969    102.375  ext2        
2        102.375    614.742  linux-swap  
4        614.742  38166.187  ext2        

But it's actually:

4 partitions:
#       start       end      size     fstype   [fsize bsize   cpg]
  a:        5       208       204       ext2                      
  b:      209      1249      1041       ext2                      
  c:        1     77545     77545     unused        0     0       
  d:     1250     77544     76295    unknown                      

so 4 (d) has type "unknown" (it's part of a software raid).
