false large partition size reporting

I have tried to create a single partition on a very large RAID. I am using parted 1.6.14, compiled from source and a custom 2.6.8 kernel compiled with Large Block Device support running on Fedora Core 2. The disk label is set to gpt, and the partition is formatted as xfs.

It will report the correct disk geometry (0.000-2622488.000 MB), and accept that value for the end of the partition (2622488.0). print will not report the correct partition size as seen below:

# parted /dev/sda print
Disk geometry for /dev/sda: 0.000-2622488.000 megabytes
Disk label type: gpt
Minor    Start       End     Filesystem  Name                  Flags
1          0.017 525335.983  xfs
