Here's the real problem:

ERROR(95): Opening '/dev/sda2' as NTFS failed: Operationen er ikke understøttet
The NTFS journal file is unclean. Please shutdown Windows properly before
using this software! Note, if you have run chkdsk previously then boot
Windows again which will automatically initialize the journal correctly.

The next build of anaconda will not traceback here, so you'll be able to do whatever is required in Windows and then retry resizing without getting the annoying traceback dialog.
