Is CWM Recovery backingup my ext. partition too?

I have Harmonia 1.5 installed. Also using Link2SD to link a lot of my apps to my extended partition. I believe my ext partition is ext3. Should CWM 3.2.0.1 be backing up (and restoring) my extended partition? Or will a restore after having tried another ROM break my Link2SD links?

I did another backup and watched carefully. No, it appears that it does NOT back up the ext partition. But I flashed the IHO CWM recovery 4.0.1.4.3, did a backup, watched it carefully and that DOES appear to be backing it up. I will be using the IHO recovery for now on.

Was the nandroid backup larger from IHO CWM?

Thanks. So far IHO seems to be doing the job properly. If it doesn't come thru for me I'll give that a shot.
