I see this quite a lot on Linux; space taken up on disk (df) but not
visible (du) is usually held by a deleted file that is still opened by some
process. You can see these with lsof, and a reboot does indeed clear this.
If you don't want to reboot, track down the process and kill it, this also
releases the handle.

Quite odd, the 109M gap between the results of du -sh . (in /var) and du
-h, disappeared after a reboot. I can't recall ever having had something
like this in Linux, so in DragonFlyBSD I hadn't expected this behaviour at
all. Like a dejavu of Windows -- to make it work, reboot.
