yes, the word inumber was strange; instead of inode or inode number  
-- hence the question.

Yes.  I have fixed the issue so the currrent results are not the same  
as they were but they are close

/dev/md2250                                                1.6G     
1.5G     11M    99%    7828   227690    3%   /local/jails/jail1

Before it was like 1.6G    1.6G    -704k  100%  with very similar  
inode results
