ext3: 100% full; after moving 3GB still full

Dear all,

on one of my server machines, a normal user process (Java) could fill
up the whole partition /home (mounted from a separated partition).

After moving about 3GB stored in various files to a larger partition,
the target partition got the 3GB, however, the /home partition was not
"freed" by the same amount of space:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5              19G   18G   73M 100% /home

Does anyone know how to taggle this problem?  Can I re-create the
journal, run an e2fsck over the partition to get rid of the problem?

Thanks for any help!
