Bug Description

Binary package hint: gparted

Description: Ubuntu 8.04.3 LTS
Release: 8.04
  Installed: 0.3.5-1ubuntu5
  Candidate: 0.3.5-1ubuntu5
  Version table:

Since after resizing a swap file system gparted always changes its UUID, several problems appear:
1. fstab needs to be modified so that the swap can be swapon properly in the next reboot.
2. /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume stalls so that hibernate does not work anymore.

Resizing or moving a swap file system should not change its present UUID just like what happens when resizing other file systems of type ext2 or reiserfs.
