Sorry, my typo. I meant "mount -o remount /var", which worked, but had
no effect. I was hoping it would "loosen" things enough for me to then
be able to unmount.
The "remount as read-only, resize, reboot" idea that Martijn mentioned
sounds like it could work.
My overnight musings lead me to the idea of simply commenting out the
mount statement for /var, and rebooting, resizing, (checking),
uncommenting the mount statement, and rebooting.
I'll have a play on a test box and see where that leads.
