Re: install/53220: sysinst dumps core with extended partitioning.

Hi Robert!

(I don't know if you remember me, but we've run into each other at IETFs

(Sure, it's just that outside the VM i have access to all my

Understood. But maybe the famous $someone should take a look at it
before 8.0-REL goes out the door.
