In case I forget I wanted to report a bug with parted where Control-C is treated as an OK response.  I was testing how parted handled a corrupt primary GPT and was rewarded with parted asking if I wanted to use the backup GPT instead with the prompt: "OK/Cancel? " I typed Control-C and it took it as an OK response.

$ parted fu print unit s print unit chs print

WARNING: You are not superuser.  Watch out for permissions.

Error: The primary GPT table is corrupt, but the backup appears OK, so that will be used.

parted: invalid token: unit

OK/Cancel? ^C

Also was going to open an enhancement request for parted to force it to use the backup GPT no matter what the state of the MBR and primary GPT.  This would be useful if case the MBR and/or primary GPT were corrupt (think: "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX bs=512 count 130" or something similar).
