Thanks for the report!
That looks like a real bug,
and in the most recently released version: 2.2.

Can you provide more details?
For example, if that was on your /dev/sda disk, please send the output
of this command (run it as root in a terminal):

  # parted -s /dev/sda u s p free

Also, please send the first 512 bytes from that disk.  To do that,
you would run a command like this as root (again, assuming /dev/sda):

  # dd if=/dev/sda count=1 > MBR

and then attach that file, MBR, along with the parted output
in a reply to this list.
