It is rather difficult for GNU Parted to be introspective, and figure
out the difference between a messed up partition table and a bug.
We like receiving emails about strange partition tables, so we know
what's out in the wild.  Once we know, we can add special checks for
those tables...

Yes.  Ignore should be fine :)
