Using 'du' for file sizes (without -A option) is wrong in the first place.
Any program or script that is using it in such a way is broken and should be
That's not true, -A displays the apparent size not the actual disk usage
which is what we want.
Disk usage is not equal to file size. 'ls -al' shows file size, 'du' shows disk usage.
Use the one you need, but don't expect them to be the same thing.
