I've done some extensive testing repeatedly resizing (both down and up) an 
NTFS Vista partition, and the patch works well. Vista boots correctly 
after the resize operations.

It turns out that a minor additional patch in partman-partitioning is 
necessary (a short sleep to allow the system to settle before running the 
final 'ntfsresize -f' command).

I would still very much like to hear the rationale behind the patch and 
especially an analysis of how/why it will (not) affect resizing other 
filesystems. This will help to decide how much additional testing is 

I have not yet tested with other filesystems, but will try to do so
