Some additional observations:

Browsing the bug list archive (which I probably should have done before posting) I noticed that the support for Atari disks is implemented as a patch on top of version 3.2 (http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-parted/2016-12/msg00004.html). No wonder I could not find the term 'atari' in the parted 3.2 source :) Looks like the function atari_probe may be fuddled by some coincidence?

+ * The Atari disk label doesn't have any magic id
+ * so we must completely parse the layout to be sure
+ * we are really dealing with it.
+ */

Apparently, the version of parted in the Clonezilla distribution (and of partedlib used in gparted) is patched (parted --version reports 3.2). I don't have a full Linux system at hand so I can't compile from source & depend on binary distributions.
