I'm currently working on a wrapper library to automate GNU parted. I'm currently writing the integration tests for my library and I noticed some strange behavior that I can't seem to figure out if it's intended or not.

1. When running `parted /dev/sda --script -- mkpart "ext4" 1MB 100MB` parted automatically assigns "ext4" as the name of the partition. I assume this is a bug? 2. When running `parted /dev/sda --script -- name 1 ""` parted seems to ignore the empty string, so I am unable to remove the name. If I run the command manually without "--script" it asks me for the name and after pressing enter, it doesn't remove it. Is there a way to remove a name from a partition?

The mkpart command seems to also require different arguments depending on the partition table of the disk, but the manual doesn't mention the parameters required for each of the partition tables.

Best regards,
Richard Szibele
