Right off the top of my head, it almost sounds like a file is being held
open after its been deleted ... we went through that with the new aspseek
a little while back, where 170gig just disappeared overnight, but du
showed hardly any disk space being used ...

Does restarting the database server (not rebooting, just restarting the
postmaster) free up the disk space?
