Er... I was trying to give a *small* resize= value, actually, given that
the default is documented as 1000x the FS size at creation.  I don't have
a good mental model of what the space reservation entails, but given
*that* kind of default fudge factor, I added a small integer multiple
on top of what I thought would plausibly happen.
