This is a rediculous suggestion, but I'll make it anyway: Try opening
the image, saving it, exiting the VM, and starting again. Then see if
resizing works. I dimly recall that (maybe about a year or so ago)
there was some combination of the VM and image that was exhibiting
similar symptoms on my Linux box. Sorry I can't recall the root cause
or the fix, but maybe this will help in your case.
