WAY back when IncredibleDoes ported the Desire Z for the Inc., an sd-ext partition was required. At that time CWM, while had a Partition option, it did not work and people had to use the Amon_RA recovery instead of CWM to partition.
In discussing the partition size with rmk40 via Twitter, he stated that it should be 1024MB (1GB). Here's the link
to the Amon_RA recovery thread. You'll need to backup your sdcard and in the past there was a several step formatting process going from ext3 (I think it was) to ext4. This was, as I said, a long time ago and CWM may work now, likewise, the Amon_RA recovery steps may be easier (not that they were really hard to begin with, just don't stop until it's ext4). The longest part for me is backing up a 2/3 full 32GB sdcard... Very slow in both directions (over an hour each way).
Hope this helps.
Edit: Should be a 1GB partition not 1MB - typo.
