Bug Reported On My Machine

To whom it may concern:

This is a copy of the message my Knoppix v3.3 Live CD gave to me when I 
entered the "qtparted" command while my PocketDisk 128MB USB memory disk was 

version (1.6.4) and the following message:Assertion (ped_                   
geometry_test_equal (&part->geom, &old_geom)) at ../../libparted/disk.c:1681 
in                    function ped_disk_get_max_partition_geometry() failed.
Error: msdos disk labels do not support partition names.
Error: Could not detect file system.
Error: msdos disk labels do not support partition names.
Warning: The partition table on /dev/sda is inconsistent.  There are many 
reason                   s why this might be the case.  Often, the reason is 
that Linux detected the BIOS                    geometry incorrectly.  
However, this does not appear to be the case here.  It i                   s 
safe to ignore,but ignoring may cause (fixable) problems with some boot loader
                  s, and may cause problems with FAT file systems.  Using LBA 
is recommended.

I'm presuming this would have been fixed in Knoppix v3.4. Or is this error 
possible because I utilize my disk between Windows, Macintosh and now Linux 

Thank you in advance,
