I do not know if this is related, but input anyway.

I moved from RH 2.4.x kernel -> 2.6.x. kernel on my box. After a lot of
upgrades to most system stuff

( http://www.hantslug.org.uk/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?LinuxHints/RedHat_2.4_To_2.6_Kernel_Upgrade )

I found FDISK broke and reported wrong disk sectors etc. A lot of Googling
revealed it was indeed a bug of sorts (I think), and an upgrade sorted it

Now whether FDISK is used in this I do not know.
