Thanks for calling attention to that.  From your original report,

address@hidden:/mnt/160G-1$ du -s --si  * Documents\ and\ Settings/
4.5G    Documents and Settings
1.5G    Documents and Settings/

I can explain why it is listed twice - you listed it twice on the command
line (once via * without a trailing slash, and once and via explicit
naming with the slash).  But I'm not sure why the two values are coming
back differently.  Maybe an experiment on a smaller directory is in order?
 Maybe someone else can point to something to look at?
