Total files size exceeds filesystem size


I've got a interesting problem.

I've got a filesystem whose size is only 32 gb and bdf shows that correctly and also reports that used space is around 28 GB and the filesystem is 92 % full.

But.. When i do a ls -al on the filesystem and calculate the total size of all the files it shows up as 37 GB :-( How can that be possible ??? if the filesystem size it self is only 32 GB
