I don't think this is the problem, because the complaint would have
also occured during "print".

This is very strange.  I wonder why the constraints are so strict.
It might be an out-by-one type bug... try creating the partition from
35504 instead of 33503.  Anyway, you can get the constraints by
playing with gdb... when you get back, I'd appreciate it.
I'll explain how to do it then.
