I killed udev for /dev/sdd, gparted works now. But I really need a 
quicker way than editing a udev rule. I wonder if I could make udev 
aware that gparted was running.  That would be ideal. So would 
meaningfull gparted error reporting without having to wade thru a 
kilobyte of (spit) html. I'm going back to bed...
