Problems resizing Win 2000

Hi all,

I just encountered some strange problems after shrinking a
windows 2000 partition in place (parted-1.4.4). These problems
are _not_ identical to those discussed here some weeks ago

In the case mentioned Windows _does_ boot and seems to work fine
(the boot.ini content is still valid since partition numbering
hasn't changed due to the shrinking in place). Only if you try
to start some external application (e.g. the Windows caculator)
you get a message that a dll could not be found. The dll is still
there but Windows 2000 appearently kind of caches its absolute
location on disk. Since it was moved during resize Windows can't
find it any more and is not clever enough to search anew.

Has anyone else encountered similar problems?
Has anyone found a workaround for this?

Thanks in advance
