Not quite.  The 5MB is trivial, I agree.  However what I would like
is a way to see it with a GNU/Linux tool.  qtparted and fdisk both
cannot see it, so it appears it is not a proper partition.  I want to
be able to restore it later if it gets corrupted and I decide I want
to use it.

It's the principle of the matter - it's hidden and I want to see it!
Openness and transparency and all that...
