Would you mind upgrading to either 3.4.7 or possibly even to an experimental
version (well, right now 3.4.7 would be the better choice as setup-storage in
experimental might be broken). That said, I've put the same disk layout on a
test system and it seems to work fine with a slightly patched (see recent mails
about problems with disk size) experimental builds. Therefore there's also a
good chance that this works well with 3.4.7.
