Yes I did, several times, I even rebooted to make sure the
table was reread.

Yes I suspected that but it stills scares me tad.

I'm using df 4.5.2, and df -k says:

Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/vg/lg           118169924 117732724         0 100% /store2

and if using lvscan I get:

114.49*1000*1000 =   114490000
114.49*1024*1024 =   120051466,24		

so with a few % off for the filesystem info it looks ok, But why is df
using Size and Used info from the filesystem and the Available ans Use%
info from the lvm-Volume?
