I shall rectify some points. In summary:

- I couldn't start a Xsession due to the busy space, and the virtual
terminals didn't work.

- Thunar couldn't mount the /home partition during a live session.

- Gparted couldn't resize the partition after reducing the size of the
swap memory, suggesting at the same time to update the version of e2fsck.

- Clonezilla couldn't check /dev/sda5 due to unsupported features:
metadata_csum (i must say that i used a very old version of clonezilla).

- After the restoring the system with debian-installer (keeping the data
of the /home partition, but using it as ext4 and mounting it as /home,
of course,

it's possible to enter into the target and then you can remove whatever
you want.

I already have my computer working again. There is no getting around the
fact that d-i is awesome :)
I wonder whether test-disk would have worked.
