You're right Sorry, I know what happened, I was reading both of the 0 in the first number as an 8 ... my eyes suck.

However, I think I've understood I should decrease (in the disklabel table) all their sizes (a, b and h) by 1 sector, so it should be; offset+size+1 = the next offset.
No, don't do this. It's like this:

offset + size = first sector of space AFTER the partition

offside + size - 1 = last sector of the partition

Just think of size=1 as an example in the above and it should make sense I hope.
