Bug Description

disk manager of Ubuntu 18.04 ( Bionic Beaver )

It seems to me that 'application disk manager can not display more than 32 partitions per disk.
It is therefore impossible to edit the following using the graphic mode.

She forgets to view the partitions 16, 27, 17 that are in the middle of the disc.
She forgets to view the partitions 21 and 22 which are just after the partition /
She forgets to view the partitions 24, 24, 28 and 29 which are at the end of the disc
She forgets to put in orange the selected partitions which are at the end of the disc
Click on "unallocated space" at the end of the disk to view the last partition
you have to click on the last partition to view the penultimate score.

The gparted application that knows how to manage beyond 32 partitions is not easily usable in wayland session.
What do you think?
Thank you.

Do you a command in "gnome-disks" able to do the same things that "fdisk -l" or "blkid" ?
