    One user was reporting far more usage than was showing up in the /home/user directory. After tring everything in the book, I finally did ls -l |grep user and saw hundreds of files owned by this user is /var/netenberg/archives/fantastico_de_luxe/TYPO3

    (They were owned by this user, and in a group of another user -- obviously an error).

    Fantastico's Fix common problems didn't fix it, but chown -R root:root . from the affected directory did...

    Hope this helps someone...
