modifyvm --resize doesn't work with snapshots

Description (last modified by )
I have a 20GB dynamic .vdi which I want to resize to 40GB so I issue:
VBoxManage modifyhd /full/path/to/hd.vdi --resize 40960
and it responds (instantly) with:
Running VBoxManage showhdinfo on the image tells me:
... Logical size: 40960 MBytes Current size on disk: 18464 MBytes Type: normal (base) Storage format: VDI Format variant: dynamic default ...
and also reports the same logical size for the snapshot files.
The problem is that gparted reports that the drive is still 20G (not the partition; the whole drive).
Windows disk management also sees the drive as 20G.
It looks like while VirtualBox can see the new logical size, it's not reporting it to the guest correctly.
