Ths bug does not occur in Etch or Sid, only in Sarge.

Upgrading to Etch is not an option right now, backporting coreutils might 
work. An "officially" fixed package would be the best way, of course.

I tried reading the diff between the df.c in Sarge and the one in Etch, 
but I failed, so I am no help in fixing this problem.
