when I try to create a new partition the program hangs. if I reduce the size of the logical partition before it, so that the new partition can hold 512 blocks, it works again. same if I have the space for 1 block. the hang only happens for values inbetween. additionally creating a tiny partition at end of disk, of less than 1MB but larger than 512b isn't even possible.

What disk are you using? fdisk have some limits of applicability.
It also can be problem with hardware. Ones I used bad SATA cable... It takes two weeks to find out it.
