It could be that some process has a large file open, where the directory
entry has been deleted - the space used by the file itself won't be freed
until whatever process has it open has closed it.

You may be able to use 'lsof' or 'fuser' to locate the culprit (*) (don't
know if OSX has either of those tools). Otherwise, a reboot of the machine
is the simplest solution if that's the problem.



(*) Try 'lsof /' for starters, as root.
