        I am working on the fdisk interface to libparted.  While, coding
fdisk I have been fixing problems with parted as well.  I have parted working
very well.  The only problem I am having trouble solving is when parted
auto-probes for all devices libstore outputs a screen full of errors.

        For example:
        /home/hde/PATCHED_parted-1.6.11/parted/.libs/parted: cannot load 
        libstore_/dev/sd0.so.0.3: libstore_/dev/sd0.so.0.3: cannot open 
        shared object file: No such file or directory.

I took a look at LIBSTORE/module.c and notices the function open_class returns 
EGRATUITOUS.  I looked it up and I have read 

        "Tomas Bushnell added, "More precisely EGRATUITOUS officially 
means that some server has responded in an impossible or protocol-violating 
fashion. There are some cases in the Hurd where EGRATUITOUS is returned and 
probably something else should be chosen instead."".

Now knowing this I would think the error code returned for No such file or dir 
would be ENOENT, is this a good idea?  If we find a suitable error code we can 
remove the stderr output embedded in libstore and the calling program could 
output what they like if they like which would be a lot cleaner.
