Incorrect block assignment in /tmp
 
Riddle me this one. My df -h output shows my /tmp volume as:

/dev/sda6 2.0G -64Z 2.0G 101% /tmp

That seems odd so I use df -k and lo and behold, the something has a goofy block assignment:
Code:

$ df -k
Filesystem          1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda8            11795856    856572  10330424  8% /
/dev/sda1              155545    43666    103849  30% /boot
/dev/sdb2            280148860  26205300 239712784  10% /data
/dev/sda3              4761848  1129652  3386404  26% /home
none                  1947712        0  1947712  0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda6              2038472 -73786976294838102712  2037000 101% /tmp
/dev/sda2              9920624  3629240  5779316  39% /usr
/dev/sda5              4761816    466500  4049524  11% /var

yeah -73786976294838102712? That seems a bit wrong to me. Anyone offer any insight as to how to work around this? du doesn't show any files miss defined on the volume and I am kinda dumbstruck for how to resolve this. The kernel thinks that I am at 101% usage for /tmp right now.

have you recently plugged in any removable drives or memory sticks? and not unmount them before unplugging them?
