I don't understand a lot about the new partitioning tool yet - but yes,
it's possible that dots vs. comma makes the difference.

I could imagine, that two different programs(e.g. setup storage code and
lvm tools) run with different locales, which might lead to different
decimal separators being output/expected, and therefore not match
between tools .
