Thanks, Yuri.   According to the FAQ you linked, wouldn't a good smattering
of "sync ; sync ; sync ; sync ; sync" cause the the two to reflect the sizes
accurately?   This problem has been going on for some time now, so I have
more than exceeded the recommendation to "wait up to 30 seconds".

It does appear that softupdates are on, if that matters.

deathray# dumpfs /var | grep -i soft
flags   soft-updates

As the FAQ and Neal's response point out, this is where logs go, but I have
cleaned out logs several times over the last few months, so that doesn't
appear to be the problem:

deathray# du -sh /var/log
1.5M    /var/log

I am also not sure what to make of the 5% inode usage on this volume:

deathray# df -hi /var
Filesystem    Size    Used   Avail Capacity iused ifree %iused  Mounted on
/dev/da0d     248M    214M     15M    94%    1720 31302    5%   /var
