Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-utils

Ubuntu started complaining about low disk space, but Baobab (Disk Usage Analyzer) claims I have plenty of free space. Running df confirmed that there was very little space. I installed and ran xdiskusage, which revealed a large folder called inodes - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inode - Baobab doesn't show this folder even when running through sudo.

My partitions are fairly simple, I have one ext4 partition for both system and user data, and one extended partition for swap. The swap partition is 7.7 GB, so that doesn't account for the missing space. The inodes folder is 14.5 GB, which doesn't account for all the free space Baobab claims, but most of it.
