Hi. Your gparted is compiled and linked against libparted
version 1.6.21 which is old and this problem has been
corrected for some time ago according to
Please update to a version of gparted linked against an
up to date version of libparted.

Alternatively you can test out the gparted livecd,
http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php, which I believe should be
fully up to date.
