Thanks for the responses. Just to add, I've used the shrink utility in
windows before. Its true as Hiemanshu points out that defrag should be
done or else its not good. However in Win XP the shrink feature is not
even there, so I'll be stuck there for sure. I think I'll use a
Gparted Live USB for those in need tomorrow.
Also I'll file a bug report only after checking if the problem occurs
on an actual physical system too.

Boot Windows normally,
use DiskManager to shring the Windows volune
iirc Administrative tools > Managment > Storage
Then when that finished you have a spare partition in which to install
You need to defrag, disable paging, and shadowing before you can get a good
size out of the shrink (out of 250GB of free space I could only shrink by 8G
because it wasn't defragged, and shadowing, etc was all on)
