Sorry to reply to my own post, but after Bob's new fsck.gfs2 was successfully run and the filesystem was remounted, it's actually now reporting its *old* size.

- the block device and gfs2 fs were 70GB;
- the block device was grown to 100GB, then gfs2_grow was run and the filesystem reported 100GB too;
- encountered ENOSPC errors;
- unmount, run Bob's "fsck.gfs2 -y /dev/xvdb" and re-mount the filesystem;
- filesystem now reporting 70GB total space;

Is this a known issue?
