Hi, after a few attempts I found the exact steps to reproduce this bug:

user $ dd if=/dev/zero of=emulated-disk.img bs=1M count=100 # Let's pretend this small file is our disk
100+0 records in
100+0 records out
104857600 bytes (105 MB, 100 MiB) copied, 0.112727 s, 930 MB/s

user $ parted --script emulated-disk.img mklabel msdos
user $ parted --script emulated-disk.img mkpart extended 1s -- -1s
Warning: The resulting partition is not properly aligned for best performance.

user $ parted --script emulated-disk.img mkpart logical -- 99MiB -1s # I used to create a tiny partition at the end and name it "XXX_Security" to store the disk's owner information, sometime Parted will hide small inter-partition gap so I usually create it first user $ parted --script emulated-disk.img mkpart logical 3s 99MiB # Then I create a filesystem to install GNU/Linux, it's not M$ Windows so I can just give them a logical partition Warning: The resulting partition is not properly aligned for best performance.

user $ parted --script emulated-disk.img print
user $ parted --script emulated-disk.img \
> unit s \
> print # Notice that the partition record is not in order and even that it's valid I still hate it...

Welcome to fdisk (util-linux 2.27.1).
Changes will remain in memory only, until you decide to write them.
Be careful before using the write command.

You found a bug in GNU Parted!


Assertion (metadata_length > 0) at ../../../libparted/labels/dos.c:2313 in function add_logical_part_metadata() failed.

Aborted (core dumped)

Note that I do align the partitions in the real life, the operation above is just for simplicity. I'm using Parted 3.2 from Ubuntu 16.04's software archive, I will try attach a coredump from the current HEAD of the master branch in the next reply.
