I'm very skeptical that the `df' issue is actually fixed upstream,
especially given that the patch seems to be almost entirely
documentation.  Maybe it deserves to be bumped there.  Attempts to
repro the issue have been unsuccessful, and I've spent about all the
time I care to in attempting it.

OS: Ubuntu 11.04
df (GNU coreutils) 8.5
