    I think I have seen this once or twice in the past. A reboot always
    made it go away and it didn't seem to come back. fsck never showed
    anything so I assumed it was just the kernel having lost its mind about
    the state of the FS.

    I think I was using 2.4.18 or so at the time I last saw it. It is quite
    a while ago but it was ext3 as well as far as I recall.

    I originally thought my df and company was messed up (since I think I
    have seen a case on sparc where the libc/df were out of sync causing
    weird output).

    I never thought much about it since it didn't seem to be reproduceable
    since it never repeated itself.
