Expanding an Array...Is the Compaq ACU stupid?

I just finished adding a 72.8GB drive to a 203GB array (consisiting of 4 72.8GB drives) and expanding it using the ACU software. I ended up with a 253GB logical drive with 20GB of unused space. Is this normal? Is the expansion algorithm that Compaq uses stupid? or is it very inefficient at larger drive sizes? How many times do I need to run the expansion module until all of the space is used up?

As always, thank you in advance for any insight and help.
