Good stuff! :)

Jonathon, I do not know the answer to your question, but I have seen 
many posts on some of the lists to which I subscribe[1] on the following:

- "df and du give me different output"
- "du and quota give me different output"
- "du and foo give me different output"

So I rather suspect a bug in du, as the posters have noticed this on 
different versions of Solaris, Linux, *BSD, etc. This would be strange, 
as du has been around for a long time, but... ? I have not slogged 
through the source yet, however. Maybe later today.
