I just had the following warning show up in an xterm (/dev/pts/0) on my Debian testing/unstable mixed system. /dev/hda1 is my Windows 2000 NTFS partition. Any idea what's wrong? (I'm backing up my home partition and my other really important stuff and hoping for the best)

WARNING: device /dev/hda1: *kBAvail(3084310)+kBUsed(5831734) exceeds kBSize(8916043)

Here's what's running with that xterm as its controlling terminal.
(I don't see any message relating to this in dmesg, nor in my logs)

Apparently something involved in KDE is spitting out the warning. I don't know what or why, though.

I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
