On C6, kernel 2.6.32-573.26.1.el6.x86_64, GParted did not succeed using

GParted 0.19.1
Libparted 2.1

On C5, kernel 2.6.18-410.el5, Gparted succeeds with some HDDs, but not
others, using

GParted 0.4.8
Libparted 1.8.1

Using a 'rescue' disk, Parted Magic 2013_02_28, I ran Gparted version
Libparted 3.1
on a Linux kernel of 3.7-9-pmagic. It created the partitions and
formatted them without problems.

Never had a gui partition creation problem when installing from C 6.5
minimum install disk

Have I found a bug in C6 ?
