You didn't do anything stupid... this is odd.

That is very strange.  Even if the resize fails, it shouldn't corrupt
the file system or the partition table.

So, it looks like I miscalculated the minimum size the FAT resizer needs,
which would explain the first (but not subsequent problems).

I had a look, and there's a bug in checking the return codes, so Parted
might have believed the resize succeeded, which is bad.  I'd expect
your file system to be toast, but not your partition table to be also.

Perhaps there was memory corruption from the bug (I wouldn't be
surprised), which would explain it.

BTW, Parted can do gpart-type stuff...
