1. leave it fixed (display second '*' if the end of partition is unaligned)
2. restore the original (display second '*' if partition size is odd)
3. restore the original with a different look
By the way, I found the disklabel(8) of DEC OSF/1 does the "fixed" behavior.
Did you fix it? :-)
How about other BSDs?

Thanks for information. I didn't know the fact
since I've never created such a partition on Sun's. :-)
