The --initlabel argument means to initialize the disk label, which would have
the effect of clearing the partition table.  So while the partitions themselves
should be there, they will not be listed in the partition table.  This is
functioning as designed.  If you are still seeing this problem after removing
that argument, feel free to reopen this bug.
