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.

Thanks all,
