I have been able to confirm the above error using the latest parted from the git repository (April 24, 2010). My testing used the Ubuntu 10.04 Beta2 distribution, a GPT partition table, and an existing partition already mounted. When I try to create a new partition I receive the warning message.

Next I took a plain vanilla copy of parted-2.2 and applied only the two patches from this mailing list item:

My testing with plain vanilla parted-2.2 plus the two patches worked 100% without any warning being displayed.

This leads me to believe that there is some other change in the git repository since parted-2.2 was released that is causing the warning message to be displayed.
