Thanks for your well written bug report.

Your partition table on /dev/hdb has a partition that ends beyond
cylinder 1023 which has its CHS encoded as (1022, ?, ?).  Parted
was expecting 1022 to indicate a real CHS address.  I've changed Parted
so to only expect this to be the case for C > 1022.

I will release a new Parted shortly...
