I understand that "encrypted home directory" feature shouldn't eat up space and only mount "virtual" drive, but then I don't understand the output from df:

~ ➤ du -h --max-depth=0
48G     .
~ ➤ df -h
Filesystem         Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda6          110G   93G   12G  89% /
udev               3.8G  4.0K  3.8G   1% /dev
tmpfs              1.5G  948K  1.5G   1% /run
none               5.0M  8.0K  5.0M   1% /run/lock
none               3.8G  8.0M  3.8G   1% /run/shm
cgroup             3.8G     0  3.8G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
/home/kb/.Private  110G   93G   12G  89% /home/kb

df says I have 93 gigabytes used, while du says it's only 48. Where is the problem?
