You wouldn't per chance be trying to change the size of sd1c (from
what the "old default partitioning" reports)? I tried some of this
labeling stuff yesterday, and I found that as long as the size of the
'c' partition remained constant I could change almost anything else.
However, if I tried to screw around with the number of sectors of the
'c' partition I got the same error messages that you got.
