Distribution: Gentoo
Data: /home
Target: Resize from 1GiB to 800MiB (plenty of free space)
Filesystem: ext3
Method: ext2resize with kernel patches and latest e2fsprogs

Unmount /home in single user mode.  Resize using ext resizing utilities and 
spend the next 12 hours recovering inodes with fsck only to find a few 
hundred megs of data in /home/lost+found (with nonsensical names) and 
swearing off ext3 for mission critical data.
