RE: Scripting parted

Output from parted when I try to use "-s" with the mklabel command
Note: This may not matter, but my disk starts of with a partition table
format that is not recognized by parted.

The output if I use "-s":

     ~ # parted -s /dev/hda mklabel yes msdos
     Warning: The existing disk label on /dev/hda will be destroyed and
all data on this disk wi
     ll be lost. Do you want to continue?
     Backtrace has 2 calls on stack:
       2: /lib/libparted-1.8.so.0(ped_assert+0x6c) [0x2ab11e98]
       1: parted [0x411d44]
     *** glibc detected *** parted: munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer:
0x00463cc0 ***

If I don't use "-s":

     ~ # parted  /dev/hda mklabel yes msdos
     Warning: The existing disk label on /dev/hda will be destroyed and
all data on
     this disk will be lost. Do you want to continue?
     Information: Don't forget to update /etc/fstab, if necessary.

And the version:

     ~ # parted -v
     GNU Parted 1.8.1
