Hi There,

  We are in the process of fixing our GPT handling to be spec-compliant, so 
things should improve in the future.  That said, parted does not honor the # of 
partition field, which is the source of the problem (well, the source of the 
problem is that # of partition should be at least 128, but Linux can apparently 
deal with this better).
