FreeBSD keeps a certain percentage (I thin 8%) of your disk
as a reserve, so you can have more disk space occupied than
"full size minus 8%). At the moment, the reserve is utilized
to store some data.

Maybe you find some files to delete in /var, the situation
should normalize.

But still, the values look something strange... too strange...
