Description of problem:
Existing partitions for /dev/hdb and /dev/hdc are read correctly by fdisk,
but the new fangled disk druid (in GUI or text mode) reads partition table
from outer space.

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select DiskDruid as partition method, either GUI or text mode.
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:  DiskDruid sees:
