Pitty!

Oh, yes... BTW, do you realize now? Seeing the troubles I've had to by-pass with my extended partitions table, if I haven't proceeded as I did, with that "placeholder", in this moment I would probably be completely messed up and without any idea what to do. The problems I've had with that test partition have cautioned me for the real thing and indicated what should I take care of.

I still think you could have done without it, and then added it inside the slice near the end. OTOH, you're much closer to this problem and what you did than I am, and if by having it there and having to deal with it, the experience led to more discovery then that's not bad at all either.

I suggest looking into using lvm, though unfortunately we can only grow ffsv2 filesystems.
