Why would you *mount* a filesystem and resize it, when it's
safer and easier done unmounted?

Simply umount, resize2fs (use e2fsadm as a wrapper, if you are
LVMming), mount it and off you go.  To ext2, .journal is but
another file, AFAIK, and if you umounted cleanly, nothing will
have to be played back, AFAIK.

Works well enough for me, when I use it.
