I just wanted to add that I had the same exact situation and this solution
also worked for me.  My only difference was my filesystem was xfs (not
ext3), also, in this part:

I knew the exact end value from when I created the partition, so I used it
instead of -1.  Not sure if it would have worked it out had I used -1, but I
thought my number safer.
