So, "/" is really ~45 GB in total, but:
$ du -sh -x /
du(1) counts only 5,6 GB? Hm, first thing that comes to mind are of course
(stale) open files, which cannot be found with find(1) any more and are
not freed to the fs, so df(1) does not know about it. I usually use
"lsof -ln | grep deleted", but that'd be a *lot* of large, open files.
Block count: 12207384
Reserved block count: 610369
This reserve would sum up to ~2,3 GB, but this still does not explain the
difference to 45 GB. Hm.
I've looked for large files/directories via find (-type d/f -size +1G) and
fsck'ing the partition multiple times with various options, but no luck.
And you unmounted or at least remounted r/o the partition for the fsck, so
the open files should not even be an issue here. Strange indeed...sorry to
be of no help here...
