Bug in parted (1.4.24)

When trying to resize a FAT partition I get the following:

# parted /dev/hdc print
Disk geometry for /dev/hdc: 0.000-407.039 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem  Flags
1          0.031    285.960  primary   ext2        
2        285.961    407.039  primary   FAT 

# parted /dev/hdc resize 2 300 350
Information: Would you like to use FAT32?  If leave your file system as
FAT16, then you will have no problems.  If you convert to
FAT32, and MS Windows is installed on this partition, then you must
re-install the MS Windows boot loader.  If you want to do this,
you should consult the Parted manual (or your distribution's manual).
Also, converting to FAT32 will make the file system
unreadable by MS DOS, MS Windows 95a, and MS Windows NT.
