Usually because it is a raw device.  Sometimes because I create a
new filesystem on it and need an other size.

True.  What about

        ext2resize.c            --> core ext2fs resizing code
        ext2resize_parted.c     --> glue for libparted (incl partition stuff)
        ext2resize_stand.c      --> standalone glue ?

It doesn't even have to be a log window, just grep all the [translated]
messages and put them into the log widget (which can have it's own window,
but doesn't have to).


Of course it doesn't work. We've performed a software upgrade.
