Thanks for comment. Fdisk was recommended me by another experienced user
too, so there is probably a good reason. Though I don't know, what's wrong
with using parted.
BTW, this problem partition was not the raid1 partition, but a copy of the
boot partition on the startup disk. In case the boot disk ever fails, I hope
I can make the 2nd disk bootable by just installing grub.
