Comment 2 Jindrich Novy 2004-08-05 11:43:09 UTC
After consultation with Elliot Lee (sopwith@redhat.com) we changed the
text more precisely. In the time the warning is displayed, no
partitions are deleted, but and they *ARE* really deleted when user
saves partition table to disc! So the message is now changed as
noticed in the following patch.

greetings,
Jindrich

Jindrich did all the hard work - just closing the bug here to reflect
that.
