I'm running Debian Sid (Kernel 2.6.10).
My primary hard drive is a Maxtor 120GB.

When trying to access the partition list of this drive with qtparted, I
get the following error in a message box:

Critical error during ped_disk_new!

If I try to access the disk a second time, the program shows the error
again and freezes, leaving no option but to kill it.

The console log prints the following lines:

Error: Unable to satisfy all constraints on the partition.
A bug has been detected in GNU parted.  Please email a bug report to
address@hidden containing the version (1.6.21) and the following
message:Assertion (disk != NULL) at ../../libparted/disk.c:1037 in
function ped_disk_next_partition() failed.

However, when i run fdisk -l, I can read the partition table:

Disk /dev/hda: 123.5 GB, 123522416640 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 15017 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

/dev/hda6            9396       15018    45154840+  83  Linux

Partition table entries are not in disk order

I goggled the error from qtparted and did not found any answer except
things like "backup your data and reformat your disk".

I have no problem with my secondary hard drive.

Is this a known bug (I did not find anything in the archive)?

Thank you for your software and your help.
