attempting to use the extended partitioner crashes the installer when saving or finishing partitioning.

this is tested with the installer for three different platforms: netbsd/i386 on a 486 machine with a single ide drive, netbsd/mac68k on a quadra 700 with a single scsi drive, and netbsd/vax on a vaxstation m38 with two scsi drives. the issue prevents the use of the extended partitioner for installation.
enter the extended partitioner in the installer, and then save changes. whether or not any changes were made does not seem to change the result.
