That error means something is corrupting the memory, it is hard to guess what exactly and debugging it is nasty - it means we would need to track down what was allocated before this memory block (guard1 is marker inserted in front of the allocated memory block). 

Fortunately the code to print the partition table is in stand/common/disk.c and the partition code is just next to it and so it should be relatively easy to find the guilty one… I will try to see if I can replicate the issue.
