Description of problem:
The disk usage reported by 'df' is wrong when I plug a 250GB USB Hard Disk 
containing one fat32 partition. 
# fdisk -l /dev/ubb 
Disk /dev/ubb: 251.0 GB, 251000193024 bytes 
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30515 cylinders 
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes 
   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System 
/dev/ubb1   *           1       30515   245111706    c  W95 FAT32 (LBA) 
# grep ubb /etc/fstab 
/dev/ubb1 /media/LACIE  vfat pamconsole,exec,noauto,iocharset=utf8,managed 0 0 
# df -kT /media/LACIE 
Filesystem    Type   1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on 
/dev/ubb1     vfat   245051840        64 245051776   1% /media/LACIE 
# du -sk /media/LACIE 
108795040       /media/LACIE 
The disk indeed contains ~110GB and should report ~50% use. Instead, it 
reports 1% use.
