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