Aha. That would explain why when the device remounted it showed up as the old 
size of 3GB after I resized the lower level device to 50GB. In the end,
I backed up the device, and made a new filesystem on the DRBD device,
and remounted it. It showed the full size fine. I didn't feel confident
enough using the drbdsetup resize option.
