Downloaded and compiled with no problems. Passed all tests. My

40G HD. Had 3G system partition, 5G home partition and a swap partition.
I wanted to expand the home partition to about half the disk. I deleted
the swap partition (3) and resized the home partition without error. I
then re-created the swap at the end. Running parted again shows it was
successful. All applications that report disk size report it was not.
The disk size has not changed. Ran fsck -fv /dev/hda  and had no errors.
All applications run as normal. fsck reports no change in disk size. 

Output of parted:

address@hidden abc]# /sbin/parted /dev/hda print
Disk geometry for /dev/hda: 0.000-38166.679 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem  Flags
1          0.031   2996.499  primary   ext3        boot
2       2996.499  20802.919  primary   ext3
3      20802.920  20999.025  primary   linux-swap

Running parted interactively yields:

address@hidden abc]# /sbin/parted

Using /dev/hda
Information: The operating system thinks the geometry on /dev/hda is
4865/255/63.  Therefore, cylinder 1024 ends at 8032.499M.
(parted) quit

confirming my system is confused but not giving me a clue as to how to
fix it.
