Bug Description

trying to do the guided resize testcase, the first thing to check is that the initial value given is 50%. so when i start out i read minimum is 1.9 GB (1%) and max is 157.6 GB with the initial value being 79.8 GB whereas 50% of 157.6 GB is 78.8 GB. after resizing, the partition table reported the 79.8 GB value.

next thing to do is to check the minimum size. so i try 1% and i get an error that it's smaller than minimum. i try typing just 1.9 and, again, too small (does it assume KB?). then i try 1.9 GB and it works fine. after resize, the partition table reported 1.9 GB.

so now i'm tasked to do a resize to the maximum and i can't. my only option is to reuse the 1.9 GB partition. so i made a new partition out of the free space and i was given min 512 MB (0%), max 157.1 GB and again i get an initial value of 78.6 GB whereas 50% is 78.55 GB. admittedly this time if you round up to the nearest tenth, then 78.55 → 78.6 so that makes sense but it doesn't apply to the above. this time it did take the max value with no complaining. the partition table reported 157.1 GB after resize.

i didn't try 100% but i wonder if that would have actually worked.
