cfdisk window

Description of problem:
I labeled a NTFS partition on a disk with  "ntfslabel /dev/sdc5 WINDOWS_BACKUP"
But when opening that disk with "cfdisk", it shows only [^K] as label, and not WINDOWS_BACKUP.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a disk partition
2.Label it with ntfslabel
3.run cfdisk for that disk
Actual results:
[^K] is displayed as label

Expected results:
the correct label

Additional info:
"gparted" shows the label correct!

gparted window for the same disk.

You have to update to F-14, the old cfisk version does not use libblkid, so the  support for filesystems is pretty poor. 

The change is too invasive to be backported to F-13. Sorry.
