I'm sorry, I wrote my mail in haste. Yes, you're correct, but what
you're seeing is commonly the result of softupdates. I've seen it
happen many MANY times, and it's easily reproducable. However, it goes
away after a few minutes.
If yours is that way constantly, I can't really explain what's going on.
I'm just pointing out that negative disk space used is something I've
seen many times, and it's always gone away on its own fairly quickly.
What you have might be some corrupted filesystem, but someone more
familiar with UFS/FFS will have to comment. Output from ffsinfo(8) on
that filesystem may be useful.
