[PLUG] df shows 33G used, but it does not add up with du

I have an xfs filesystem that shows 33G used when I run df...

[rob at mythtv ~]$ df -h /mythtv
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5              65G   33G   32G  52% /mythtv

However, it does not add up to 33G when I run du...

[rob at mythtv mythtv]$ pwd ; sudo du -hs
21G     .

I'm confused. Please help. Thanks in advance.
