Bug Description

Binary package hint: gparted

gparted crashed with the following console output:

glibmm-ERROR **:
unhandled exception (type std::exception) in signal handler:
what: basic_string::_S_create

aborting...

Originally, this crash was triggered by a disk with an msdos disklabel and one partition containing an LVM PV.

I then dd-ed zeroes over the first gigabyte ---> no longer crashes.

I then created *within gparted* an msdos disklabel and one unformatted partition. ---> on restarting it, gparted crashes in the same way!
