You must have missed that he DECREASED his root file system to do this.

He can't do that- first, there's no guarantee that active data blocks are not
in the area he stole from, and secondly the root still thinks it is just as
big as it ever was- which is going to REALLY screw things up sooner or later
if this hasn't already.
