Thx for any help!

Please describe the problem:
gparted detects my root partition /dev/sda3 as linux-swap instead of reiserfs.
it then tries to swapon it and blocks me trying to resize the partition.

Steps to reproduce:
1. take my disk
2. start gparted

Actual results:

Expected results:
it should detect it as reiserfs

Does this happen every time?

Other information:

I'm using gentoo, as seen in uname above. No live CD.
The partition gets swapon'd immediately and can't be swapoff'd since it's not a
swap partition.
