I've seen the same 'df' situation when softupdates are enabled, but I've never tried
to resolve the problem with a reboot. I just
ignore the 'df' output, and proceed normally. After some time passes, 'df' returns to
reporting the expected values. I've always
thought this was normal with softupdates. However, I've not had your problem with the
fsck, but then again... I've not rebooted
soon after deleting 7GB of data from a file system.
What are you running? 4.6.2, 4.7, -current?
