Default wheezy partition question

Hello List,

I am testing Wheezy on a separate partition of my hard disk.

The partitions I told the installer to use are,

/dev/sda5 as root / mount point, and
/dev/sda6 as swap

Now to the question, why the partition starts at offset #2 while I would
expect #63?

PLEASE NOTE 61 sectors shown as free
61 (+2=63 I thought should be the offset)

cfdisk reports:
==============
First Last
# Type Sector Sector Offset Length Filesystem Type
(ID) Flag

1 Primary 0 64259 63 64260 Linux (83)
Boot
Pri/Log 64260 64320* 0 61*Free Space
None
2 Primary 64321* 39857264 0 39792944*Extended (05)
None
5 Logical 64321* 7871849 2# 7807529*Linux (83)
None
6 Logical 7871850 8867879 63 996030 Linux swap / So
(82) None

I would expect:
==============
First Last
# Type Sector Sector Offset Length Filesystem Type
(ID) Flag

1 Primary 0 64259 63 64260 Linux (83)
Boot
2 Primary 64260 39857264 0 39793005 Extended (05)
None
5 Logical 64260 7871849 63 7807590 Linux (83)
None
6 Logical 7871850 8867879 63 996030 Linux swap / So
(82) None

Is this really a problem, could I correct it at all?
Many thanks.

(...)

Mine has an offset of "0" (though it's a primary partition for "/"), but
not sure if this right, wrong, bad or good... if Debian partitioner made
it in that way, it should be fine.

Are you experiencing any trouble, errors when booting or at the logs?

Default wheezy partition question

Not sure,

Logical partitions may start at offset 63, what is peculiar that the
partitioner, created offset 2 and a free space of 61 sectors, which
really is not free, 61+2 equals 63 that would be the right offset

On the same partition on my system used to be Lenny, and that was with
offset 63 and no free space.

My disk is repartitioned with no free space for many years. It just the
partiotioner that created free space of 61, that should really belong to
the offset.
