Disk Space Problems with Rsync.

I have a problem with rsync causing a filesystem to think that it is 100%
used when actually it isn't. A quick reboot will cause the filesystem to go
to about 70%-75% used. Below is the script that I am executing. I am using
Red Hat Linux release 7.1 (Seawolf) Kernel 2.4.9-34smp on a 2-processor
i686. Does anyone have any idea on what causes this and how to fix this?

export RSYNC_RSH="ssh"
rsync -alz --delete --stats server:/u01/home/piuser/ /u01/home/piuser/ 
rsync -alz --delete --stats server:/u01/public/ /u01/public/
rsync -alz --delete --stats server:/u01/perform_data/ /u01/perform_data/ 
rsync -alz --delete --stats server:/u01/perform_testing/
rsync -alz --delete --stats server:/u01/collect_setup/ /u01/collect_setup/ 
rsync -alz --delete --stats server:/usr/local/ /usr/local/
rsync -alz  --stats server:/u01/var/lib/mysql/ /u01/var/lib/mysql/
