Disk Utilty question

    In reading JR's partitioning question, I started to partition an
    external drive to check something using Disk Utility.

    The partitioning began and I think I must of CMD-Q'd Disk Utility w/o
    realizing it. The partitioning is noisily in process (I think diskutil
    needs to move stuff around first).

    Did the Disk Utility issue the command to diskutil and so when I quit
    Disk Utility diskutil just kept on doing what it had been asked to do?

    Or is my disk about to get scrambled?

    No biggie - it's a one of three identical separate sets of files.
