Odd results comparing installed files with rpm package information



I would like to ask for some help understanding the information I am
seeing on a FC2 system.

If I do an ls of say /usr/bin/vim as follows:

[root sys root]# ls -al /usr/bin/vim
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 2077400 Apr  7 06:30 /usr/bin/vim

and then do a rpm -q --dump vim-enhanced as follows:

[root ds2 root]# rpm -q --dump vim-enhanced
/etc/profile.d/vim.csh 13 1081333835 1f26ff8ae76565efa8a8bada7f3a4b9e
0100755 root root 1 0 0 X
/etc/profile.d/vim.sh 181 1081333835 fca2984c13cc21b51aefe32e8f07da9c
0100755 root root 1 0 0 X
/usr/bin/ex 3 1081333834 00000000000000000000000000000000 0120777 root

/usr/bin/rvim 3 1081333834 00000000000000000000000000000000 0120777 root
root 0 0 0 vim
/usr/bin/vim 2071700 1081333839 db9006780239b03107684022d7f6aaee 0100755

I believe the second column contains the files size as recorded in the
rpm database.  However in the above example the file size reported in
the rpm database for /usr/bin/vim is 2071700.  The ls -l reports
2077400.

Am I looking at this wrong?
