The last time I tried GParted
(http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php) it was to repartition one
of my NTFS, I had no problem. I did, of course, move all information
off of those partitions, and have no idea how it handles with data on
the drive, but merging two empty partitions was basically painless and
I have had no problems with the partition since.
