It is trivial to fix. First remove "log" from the root partition and reboot.
(there is a bug that makes mount -u -o nolog / crash). After you reboot...
# shutdown // to single user
# disklabel -i ld0
A<enter> // autosize
end: $<enter> // resize to physical
end: $<enter> // or to whatever you want to resize.
# resize_ffs /dev/rld0a // to the size of the partition you set.
power off, no syncing.
Don't add back -o log, it makes things crash on the nightly run. I've
been running with.
