libparted and ext2

I have some questions about ext2 handling :

- Since libparted-1.6.12 the size of a new partition is no longer
absolute. e.g. i create a partition of 50MB and it'll be 52 or 47 or..
MB. It's not a very serious issue, but it can be anoying at times. Can
someone shed some light on this?

- When i create a ext2 partition with fdisk and mke2fs, libparted can't
resize it. It throws something like: "this filesystem has a rather
strange layout, parted cannot resize this (yet)"
Is this known behaviour? or is it just my machine behaving strange?

- when i resize an empty ext2 partition from a rather small size to a
much bigger size, say from 1500 to 25000 MB, the "used space" (it's just
created :S) grows *a lot*. Why is this?

Thanks in advance for any answers :)
