Package: lvm2
Version: 2.01.04-3
Severity: normal


lvm2 uses ext2resize in lvresize to resize an ext2/ext3 partition.
As I just tried it ext2resize crashed repeatedly with a segmentation
fault. After taking a lookt at the bug tracking page of this package
I would strongly consider to use another tool like the resize2fs from
e2fsprogs package.
