I was checking resize of ext4 partitions in my test system. Ubuntu
users/devel have reported problems in 9.04 and karmic.

I had made a 5 GB /boot  ext4 partition (sda2) initially and wanted to
reduce it to ~ 2GB. The vfat partition (sda1) (with full install of
freedos) was also resized to take up the resulting free space. All
this was done with the parted magic CD (ver- 4.0).

I think the problem is due to the older version (1.41.5) of e2fsprogs.

Anything below VERSION 1.41.9 is bound to be unsafe.
