Thank you Hans for the quick response.

It does appear that there is a problem with Ubuntu's version 1.8.9 of parted.

Hopefully someone from Ubuntu, or the Parted team will be able to help.

One item that would be useful to these folks would be test the latest development version of parted with this problem. A link to the GIT version of parted can be found on the parted web site.

GParted is a separate project that uses libparted for many of it's
partition editing functionality.

To help diagnose the problem, would you please provide the output from
the following commands:

    fdisk -l -u

# parted /dev/sda2 unit s print

If the parted command fails to recognize the partitions as UFS, then
we  might be looking at a bug in parted.

This seems to be the case.

# parted -v
parted (GNU parted) 1.8.9

This is on Ubuntu 8.10. I've moved and resized the FreeBSD partitions
from within FreeBSD itself and used GParted for the extended partition
with Linux in it. The output above is of the new situation. All 5 OSes
boot fine btw.
