parted 1.6.6 segfaults when resizing

I'm trying to resize a logical partition on a 100gb westerndigital harddrive, formated in msdos.

When doing a resize 5 26126.3809 65128.1792 it waits for a few seconds (while filesystems has heavy load) before it segfaults.

address@hidden:/home/cronius# parted /dev/hdc print
Disk geometry for /dev/hdc: 0.000-95396.273 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem  Flags
2          0.031   5999.765  primary   ext3
3       6126.258  95395.781  extended              lba
5       6126.381  45128.179  logical   fat32
6      67894.835  95395.781  logical   fat32

Using parted 1.6.6, linux 2.6.0, slackware 9.1. I've had the same problem with gentoo and 2.4.xx kernels/2.6.0-testx kernels, and eariler versions of parted.

When parted starts it says: "Information: The operating system thinks the geometry on /dev/hdc is 193821/16/63. Therefore, cylinder 1024 ends at 503.999M." I don't know if this is relevant.

Is this a software bug or a hardware problem? I've been using parted quite a lot on this drive, but now it just segfaults every time.
