Thanks for catching this! I've just put a fix into place, so that your
custom partitions don't get re-generated unless you've changed your
selection of disk / slice in the preceding dialog. I've also fixed it so
that when it does regenerate the partition layout, it clears any old
entries which may not be valid :)

This fix should be in Tonight's ISO for Friday. Please give it a shot
and let me know if it doesn't work the way you expect now.
