Disconnected my drives, except for system root, then du is not found
mach_1# whereis du

could have done a 'umount' but results would have been the same, so I think.
Did a backup (dump) of /, file produced in 400Mb range
dump -0Lauf /disk03/dump/root2.dump /dev/ad0s1a

So I decided to do a listing of files in the dump

To my surprise rootrestore-0.lst contains a whole listings of ./usr/ files

Now /usr is on a separate and distinct partition

Hope someone can make some sense of this.
