I would think that this is a bug in df (most likly an overflow of some
value).

Well, auming that the 49% part is correct, most likly yes. However, you
could try to do a du -s / and compare it to the the actual partition
size, for example from the output of fdisk -l /dev/hda

that should give you an idea  how much space you have left
(the du will take some time and if you want a more human readable
output, instead of the blocks used, do a du -sh /)

I hope this is a help for you
