The partitioner will allow you to create more partitions than the
FreeBSD partition table will allow. Rather than giving it the name of a
special file in the /dev/directory, it will name it just "X". You can
create as many partitions named "X" as you like.
Then the newfs will fail.
I experienced this the other day, and have been meaning to file a bug
report about it.
