SubjectBug in 2.4.18?

I've got another very strange situation, which looks like a bug in the

Raidarrays with more than 600GB (approx.) are not correctly identified
and fdisk dumps core. Kernel 2.4.18 says:

SCSI device sda: 1289371648 512-byte hdwr sectors (-439352 MB)
sda: sda1 sda2 sda3 sda4 < sda5 sda6 >

Needless to say that the disks do not have a negative size. :-)

BTW 2.2.21 says:

SCSI device sda: hdwr sector= 512 bytes. Sectors= 1289371648 [629576 MB] [629.6GB]

which surely looks okay.


P.S.: Please CC me on replies.
