    Hi there,

    I am unable to resize an ext3 volume on an LV on a RHEL5U2 system.  I am using Webmin 1.490.  The message I get when viewing the LV is:
    "This logical volume cannot be renamed or resized as it is currently in use."

    Considering I can do this via the command line without unmounting anything, I am having trouble understanding why Webmin would display such a message.

    Regards,
    Xander
