Description of problem:
For each disk with old fdisk partitions, I seem get the warning dialog box:

--------------------

Warning

Unable to align partition properly. This probably means...
[and so on]

Ignore  Cancel

--------------------

I click "Ignore", but the dialog doesn't disappear because it displays the
warning for the next disk/partition table. I click "Ignore" and get it a third time.

This isn't smart. Please extend the title bar to something like:

  Warning - <device name>

e.g.

  Warning - /dev/hda

or something similar that makes clear that each new dialog is about a new
disk/partition table.
