Can you tell us the version of libparted (or of the parted command line util
because it's the same version).

I guess there was other informations to report along with "Please report

I think you can probably configurate a block device as RAID0
of /dev/sda and /dev/sdb with standard Linux tools, so you
might be able to use *Parted on the block device you obtain.

Yeah, sometimes you don't have a floppy disk drive anymore on
