Description Andrius Štikonas 2013-01-03 15:30:23 UTC
KDE Partition Manager fails to properly delete partition signatures.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create Btrfs partition.
2. Delete Btrfs partition.
3. Create NTFS partition in the same place.
Actual Results:  
Btrfs signature is not fully overwritten by NTFS partition, so blkid (and hence partitionmanager) still thinks that the partition is formatted using Btrfs.

Expected Results:  
Valid NTFS partition is created.
