Try restarting syslogd.

It sounds odd, but it'll probably fix your problem. Files that are 
nulled out but are still opened by a process (such as syslogd having 
/var/adm/messages open all the time) would not be relflected in df 
output until those files are closed. Restarting syslogd (through HUP 
signal or start/stop) will close it's open files and reopen them.
