Please note that this is pretty old parted.

Assertion (heads < 256) at disk_dos.c:486 in function
We have this and another failed assertion regarding the number of heads
(see other mail).
Shouldn't we offer to continue/fix this instead of throwing exceptions?

It would be nice to improve parted's error reporting, at least for the most often reported issues, so problems could be (much easier) understood and fixed. Currently the common pattern is that people send the same useless bug reports for years.
