Either way, you'll have the 2gig card to pop back in.
That is the thing. I have seen no mention of doing a factory reset after upgrading the card size. The factory reset restores a firmware image from the recovery partition of the card to the main partition. Then it does something to clear the data partition. I think it simply formats the data partition, but it might delete and recreate the partition. If it does the latter, it means that any time a factory reset was done, you would need to open the device and resize the data partition.

Popping the 2GB card in doesn't solve this at all.
