bogus ext3 "incorrect link count" detection on resize (1.9.0)

It seems that 1.9.0's ext3 support isn't quite there yet.  Even after
removing resize_inode and ext_attr with debugfs and dir_index internally,
and then running e2fsck to clean up the dregs, parted refuses to resize
the partition ("error: found an inode with incorrect link count, better
go run e2fsck first!" or something like that).  Run e2fsck -f again:  no
errors.  Run parted again:  same error message.  It would appear that
we're at an impasse...

The partition in question is about 314 GB, primary (sda1), and presumably
was created with whatever mke2fs ships with Ubuntu 9.04.  (I didn't make
it; it shipped from the vendor this way.  I want some read-only partitions
but am currently stuck unless I wipe the disk and start over from scratch.)
