If the files in question have xattrs (selinux or other), you're likely
hitting this one:
I've been planning on attacking this one for some time now but haven't
had enough time to give it the attention it needs. There were a number
of changes made to the way that ZoL frees the hidden directory and
file(s) associated with extended attributes and as a result of those
changes, the space will not be freed in most cases until a mount/umount
By-and-large, this problem is worked around in ZoL by using xattr=sa.
In fact, if I was using a system that depended on xattrs at all, I'd
certainly use xattr=sa because the overall performance in general will
be substantially higher.
