Unhappy Incompatible file feature Fedora 3 / GNU Parted

I am trying to resize an ext2 partition created with Fedora. GNU parted reports an incompatible file feature. There is documentation available about the dir_index problem, but I have disabled that using tune2fs and checked (and double and triple checked) that dir_index is not active in any other Linux partition. Are there are any filesystem features apart from dir_index that cause compatibility problems with parted (and Partition"Magic")for that matter?

You will probably have to convert your ext3 partition to ext2 and then use partition magic. At least, that's what I've read on some places here and there. Then of course, convert your ext2 back to ext3 once you are finished.
