bsdlabel size mismatch

On a FreeBSD 7.2 machine, I've a ~1TB drive as /dev/da0:
da0: 953664MB (1953103872 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 121575C)
the lone slice is of ~19G (per df) yet bsdlabel shows that it is
spanning the entire drive. also notice how it says unused despite it
really being an ufs FS.
[root at evu ~]# df -h /
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/da0s1a 19G 1.2G 17G 7% /
[root at evu ~]# bsdlabel /dev/da0s1
# size offset fstype [fsize bsize bps/cpg]
a: 1953102296 16 unused 0 0
c: 1953102312 0 unused 0 0 # "raw"
part, don't edit
needless to say, i cannot edit and add a new partition as "a" seems to
be spanning the entire disk according to bsdlabel at least.
any advise on this would be much appreciated. I am looking to alloc a
16G swap, and add a couple of ufs filesystems to da0.
many thanks in advance.
