One corruption in reiserfs after creating with parted

I used the mkpartfs command in parted to create some reiserfs partitions on a disk. I then checked the file system on one of the partitions with fsck, and this is what I get:
root@ttyp0[knoppix]# fsck /dev/hda2
fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
reiserfsck 3.6.18 (2003 w w w . namesys . com)

** If you are using the latest reiserfsprogs and  it fails **
** please  email bug reports to, **
** providing  as  much  information  as  possible --  your **
** hardware,  kernel,  patches,  settings,  all reiserfsck **
** messages  (including version),  the reiserfsck logfile, **
** check  the  syslog file  for  any  related information. **
** If you would like advice on using this program, support **
** is available  for $25 at  w w w. namesys. com/support.html. **

Will read-only check consistency of the filesystem on /dev/hda2
Will put log info to 'stdout'

Do you want to run this program?[N/Yes] (note need to type Yes if you do):Yes

Does anyone know why a freshly created file system would already have a corruption? I see that it is "fixable", but it seems like this should not happen.

P.S. I added the spaces in "w w w" in the above listing so I could submit this question.

just a guess but i bet the libreisefs used by parted is a different version of reserfs than your reiserfstools
always best to use mkreiserfs so your tools can work with it check it ect... without troubles
