Agreed :)

You are _not_ on next, you are on master branch.  pls do a
`git checkout next` and repeat the tests.  FYI, master == 1.9.0.
Remember to do the whole process from the beginning.  1. bootstrap, 2.
configure. 3. make  4. sudo make check

1. Do the `make check` and see if you still have the failure in t7000.
There will be failures in other tests.  but these also fail for me and
need to be addressed.

2. Execute the test line directly
dd if=/dev/zero of=testfile bs=512c count=100
echo n | sudo PREFIX/sbin/parted  ---pretend-input-tty testfile "mklabel gpt 
mkpart primary ext3 1s -1s"
