Problem with minimum partition sizes

I'm using gparted 0.0.8 with associated libgparted 1.6.20. (Gentoo)

There appear to be artificial limits in partition sizes when creating new partitions, different minimums per partition type.

Whereas some partitions may have minimum sizes, I *need* to be able to create 4Mb ext2 partitions (which I can do quite happily using fdisk) , yet the apparent minimum in gparted is set to 8Mb. (and it looks like it's getting this from 'parted')

Is there easy way of getting around this ?

If not, any chance of some saner minimum size checking ?
