Have you tried kdirstat?

Yes (and windirstat). Great tools, I've found windirstat particularly useful on windows boxen. Though:

a) can take quite a while on large directory trees (e.g. when we're talking terabytes) b) I don't always have a graphical desktop environment available on the box in question (or it's inconvenient to use it, e.g. remotely).
c) not very useful in scripts...
