Ok, I've tried this and the following is the result:

[root server data01]# for i in * ; do du -sk "$i"
"/data02/$i" ; done |more
4       lost+found
12      /data02/lost+found
79596252        Software
123557857       /data02/Software

Which seems to again confirm that the directories are
exact copies of one another (which is what rsync is
meant to do), but again with much different sizes.
