this change in behavior is caused by
sys/arch/amd64/amd64/disksubr.c v 1.4
sys/arch/i386/i386/disksubr.c v 1.46

because the context is gone, here is the OP's problem summarized:
'D' in the disklabel editor now wipes everything except the 'c' partition,
whereas it used to leave 'c', a modified 'a', and foreign filesystem (> 'i')
partitions in place.

maybe someone can comment on this?
