	I see you have not read the checkdu script I posted, or tried
 it out. What the script does is that it reads /etc/mtab to get the
 mounted partitions. Then it does a stat on each dir to get the dev_t

	So, symlinks are *NOT* a problem. (I would not have presented
 a solution here which did not even address the obvious smlink issue)

 "After one week [visiting Austria] I couldn't wait to go back to the
 United States.  Everything was much more pleasant in the United
 States, because of the mentality of being open-minded, always
 positive.  Everything you want to do in Europe is just, 'No way.  No
 one has ever done it.'  They haven't any more the desire to go out to
 conquer and achieve -- I realized that I had much more the American
 spirit." Arnold Schwarzenegger
