Re: df(1) reporting wrong size

on a freshly installed NetBSD/i386 system (5.99.11 built from sources as

disk space for the /var file system (du(1) is correct, though):
$ df -h /var
Filesystem Size Used Avail %Cap Mounted on
/dev/wd0f 241M 139M 90M 60% /var
$ du -xsh /var
IIRC a similar problem has been reported recently, but I can't find the
thread in question now.
You don't happen to have very many small files on /var do you?
If I remember right, du reports the actual size of the files, while with
df you see how much space have been allocated. They are not the same thing.
Other than that, I can't guess. :-)
