Hmmm...entirely possible. Can I fsck a drive that's
already mounted (since I can't really boot into single
user mode and say fsck -p / && mount /)? If not, what
would be the best way to fsck the drive?

I suppose those'd be the values straight off the drive
BTW, lending credence to the idea of the issue being
that the kernel is out past 8 GB, the drive is over
half full, and it's 20 GB; that practically guarantees
it's past 8 GB.
