THe number of partitions reflects the highest partition number that's
defined, not the number that are active/in-use. Of course it could
be that the actual label information for "g" is corrupt in some way
that disklabel(8) isn't showing you. Generally, it's best to set
the number of paritions to the max (8/16) for whatever port you're
running, but I don't know that that's a problem here.
