I agree on that.

It's just testing so it doesn't matter.

I did :
1.  collie node kill sheepdog002
2.  rm -r /mnt/sheepdog/*
3.  sheep /mnt/sheepdog

The node got resized
  # collie node info
  Id      Size    Used    Use%
   0      9.3 GB  976 MB   10%
   1      920 MB  976 MB  106%
   2      978 MB  976 MB   99%
  Total   11 GB   2.9 GB   25%
  Total virtual image size        10 GB

I repeated the procedure on the other nodes and it worked fine, all
nodes are resized now.

I'm experiencyng another problem about kill daemon but I'll open a new
topic after about it.
