udev doesn't get notified after fdisk has added or deleted partitions.
just let 'udevstart' gather the new partitions you created. i noticed
this behaviour even on hda when adding a new partition!
maybe ejecting the cf and reinserting will help as hotplug should
trigger udev to re-read the cf-card partition table.
