parted isn't very happy with the xvd disks because the ioctls to inform the kernel about partition layout changes don't work on these (yet?),

I'd have thought that would be a trivial patch. Please could someone
take a look.

It's fixed meanwhile (last time I tried was a few weeks ago), I've noticed yesterday after writing the mail while trying to find a fix ;)

Uhm, well, seems there _is_ some problem. The kernel or parted seems to be unhappy in case you boot with a zero'ed virtual hard disk, maybe due to missing geometry information or something like that. When booting with some partition table adding and removing partitions at runtime works ok.
