    I did the clean and it came down to:

Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda8              9187068   6624816   2095568  76% /

and this is a small change. It dropped 2% so there is a disconnect 
between what df reports and what Disk Usage application reports.
