gparted does not work on raw device, for example on stock USB stick, because there could be no partition table by default.
This is not possible to change FS label or UUID of this device (even this is possible in MS Windows). gpartes is trying to change properties of the first partition even there is none.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
