My 8 GB USB thumb drive is partitioned with a GUID partition table. 
DISKS shows Free Space 7.7 GB. So I click `+', to "Create partition in 
unallocated space". I leave the default partition size at 7747 MB, and 
free space following at 0 MB. I type a volume name, and leave Erase off. 
Then I choose type "Internal disk for use with Linux systems only 
(Ext4)". Clicking Create--yields the following error.

{Error creating partition
Error creating partition on /dev/sdf: Failed to set partition size on 
device '/dev/sdf' (Unable to satisfy all constraints on the partition.)
