Commit 81f7bb1691dc9dc69fc6e584ad8c6e36e495c103 works around it
=E2=80=9Clocally=E2=80=9D.  It=E2=80=99s good enough for now, but we should=
 eventually address
the root cause.

Mathieu, I=E2=80=99m guessing the cause of the problem, when using Parted 4=
.5,
is that the installer partitions disks somewhat incorrectly, as reported
by =E2=80=98grub-install=E2=80=99.  I wonder if it might be due to an API o=
r ABI change
that goes unnoticed in Guile-Parted because it uses the FFI.

Thoughts?

Ludo=E2=80=99.

Reverting the following commits solves the problem:

  9a867c26b0 gnu: parted: Use G-expressions & new input style.
  d798e5b6c1 gnu: parted: Update to 3.5.

The =E2=80=9Cinstalled-os=E2=80=9D test, which performs a manual installati=
on using the
=E2=80=98parted=E2=80=99 command-line tool for partitioning, is unaffected.

Thoughts?
