Hm, yeah.  There is a hard coded limit in autopartkit.c.  This line
define the limit:

  #define MAX_PARTITIONS 10

The code will need quite a lot of rewriting to get rid of the hard
coded limit.  We could increase the limit to a larger value, but it
will not really solve the problem, only reduce the impact of it. :/

retitle 308471 autopartkit: should not have hardcoded limit on the number of partitions
thanks

I've committed a patch to change the limit from 10 to 30.  This will
not solve this problem, I believe, as the real problem is the static
limit, not the number used.  The code need to be changed to scale the
array dynamically.

Subject: autopartkit has been removed from Debian, closing #308471
Date: Wed, 23 Apr 2008 01:30:10 +0100
Version: 1.30+rm

The autopartkit package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the bugs that were still opened
against it.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/473148 . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
