The simplest rule of thumb is to start a partition at 1MB, and specify all 
partition sizes in whole MB's. It solves this, and maybe also for SSDs. The 
open question is some SSDs have 2+MB erase block sizes and it's not clear if 
there's a benefit, or even a way, to partition on 2MB boundaries. Any recent 
partition tool starts the first partition on a 1MB boundary.

Isn't it possible to to give more choice in the dialogue?
I also curious about the internal calculation for "what is optimal".
