sharp increase in 'used' blocks after plain fs copy



I copied all files from 8GB partition to 12GB empty partition using rsync.
What caught my eyes, df -k was 1.2 used GB on the source partition, but 2.2 GB
on the dest partition after copy. And dest was empty before copy.
Why ?
I took file list (filename and sizes) on both partitions, sorted and diffed, no differences.
 
It's ~130,000 files , basically small debian 4 install. Block size is same
on both partitions, 4kb. The 12GB partition was created with all defaults.
 
Thanks
Viki
