This seems to happen during scanning of systems whose partitions were created using the F11 installer. My recollection is that it does not occur with partitions created using the rawhide installer.
This system has four primary partitions on sda, none on sdb.
Joel - this seems related to the new parted release. Any ideas?
This is fixed in the new parted version. parted-1.9.0-4.20090721git980c
Rawhide still contains parted-1.9.0-3.20090610git32dc.fc12. I'm going to move this into MODIFIED and leave on the F12Alpha list so we don't lose this bug.

Rawhide has parted-1.9.0-6.fc12, but I just got the bug in its Bug 513725 form with boot.iso dated 28-July-2009 00:53.
I got this error with rawhide 20090728 which has parted-1.9.0-8.fc12

Bug not fixed; moving out of MODIFIED.
+1 ... also seeing on rawhide-20090728
This appears to be a test blocker for the upcoming Alpha test compose for QA.
I've adjusted the severity to high based on the impact defined in http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/BugStatusWorkFlow#Severity.
I just patched parted and built parted-1_9_0-9_fc12. This should address the issue.
thank you. could we expect that tomorrow's boot.iso will include it? because i feel frustrated being unable to install rawhide :)
Yes. this should go into the next rawhide compose. If you can't wait I suggest you put the new libparted in the current boot.iso. You can find the new libparted in the rpm package, and you can find that at http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=124489
ok, thank you very much!
apparently fixed in 12.7, but bz 499854 has crept in preventing conclusive verification of fix.

Agreed. Fixed with boot.iso of 01-Aug-2009, but now I'm hitting Bug 513104.
