[opensuse-factory] 10.3 RC1 installation - (Second) hard disc seen as wrong size

Trying to do a 'new installation' of 10.3 RC1 on my primary test
machine, for these tests I use a second 10GB HD sdb (first HD sda has
10.2 and 'another' OS on it).

First time round, installer complained it couldn't read partition table
(which was created a few weeks ago by a 10.3 Beta installation) -
attempting to select manually using 'expert partitioning' YaST informed
me it was only 4.3GB

Exit & re-boot, BIOS also says 4.3G! so power off and on again and it's
back to 10G (which is what it IS).

Try again after using fdisk to delete partitions - no complaint from
YaST but we're back to 4.3G. I'm trying to continue but suspect that
once power is cycled it will be very unhappy.

4.3GB looks suspiciously like 2**32 bytes - maybe a bug where something
uses ulong where it needs more bits?

Anyone else see this?
