What I meant was that sometimes that df output contains numbers that 
are totally unreasonable (I'm talking about stuff like -12432454124 
in the Available column). 

Is it just me, or is there still a significant leakage of cache in
5.3.1?  I am having to restart my clients a couple of times a day when
I'm doing a lot of development (i.e. repeatedly pushing lots of
temporary and object files back and forth to the server, then sucking
the resultant big libraries and binaries from one client to another).
After a few hours of usage, I'll suddenly get the "No space left on
device" and even after shutting down all my shells and editors df
output (when it's reasonable :) shows most of the cache locked down.

Just for grins, today I tried to do a "flushvolume" on my home
directory, which completely hung venus.
