well as long /var is containing "/var/lib" and "/var/cache" than more
applications / services are running more possible changes you will get
while the sync is running

i would boot the machine with a live-cd and finalize these changes there
on the other hand i would NOT move the whole /var to an own partition

normally "/var/cache" and "/var/log" two own partitions or if it is
a virtual machine in two different virtual disks should be enough
to prevent fill the root-fs and the different disks makes it much
easier resize/replace them if needed
