The partition has an ext3 filesystem on it, but was mounted in
/etc/fstab as an ext4 partion! Changing fstype to ext3 in /etc/fstab
solves this problem. Now I can resize it online without problems.
Please close this bug report. Thank you for your hints.

resize2fs does not expand filesystem; no error messages are displayed
Status in “e2fsprogs” package in Ubuntu:
Assuming /dev/mapper/system-backup has 50GB of space ...
1. Expand an LVM volume with lvextend:
lvextend -L +50G /dev/mapper/system-backup
2. Resize the filesystem:
All seems OK, no warning or error message will be displayed. No errors in syslog, too.
BUT the filesystem is only 50G big, the additional 50G will not be available.
df -h will tell you, that there is 50GB of free space, but if you try
to use this space, you will see the error: "filesystem full".
This bug exists at least since Ubuntu 10.10! Ubuntu 12.04.1 is also
