Range for rescue search

When parted tries to rescue a partition, what range will it search through on 
the disk for the beginning/end of a parition?

I have a disk with 3 partitions and an empty partition table.  The partitions 
were all deleted with fdisk, and I only know the size of the first partition.  
I used the rescue function to recover the first partition, but I don't 
remember the size of the other partitions.  So I know where the 2nd starts, 
but not where it ends.

I can guess until it finds the correct position for the end of the partition.  
Unless I know the search range though, I may increment past the end of my 
partition, or waste too much time going in small increments..

If anyone knows, I'd appreciate it a lot =)
