Odd results from df command


When I run the df command, I get the following result:
Code:
Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1            -503479503165         1         0  37% /
In case it helps, this is what I get from df -Th:
Code:
Filesystem    Type    Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1     ext2   -503479503165k  1.0k  0.0k  37% /
Why is the size coming up with a negative number? The use figure seems about right.

I'm running Debian Woody (3.0r1). The hard drive is split into a single partition (about 2GB) plus swap.
