Have you tried running xfs_repair on the properly unmounted filesystem?
A small disparity between du and df is expected and acceptable for
filesystem overhead, but the disparity you're reporting is abnormally
high, IMHO. My hunch is something's wrong with the filesystem, which
xfs_repair will hopefully find. There's also xfs_check, just to make
sure things are fine.

If you could replicate the problem in a finite number of operations from
a clean filesystem, I'm sure the XFS team would love to be able to
replicate it in their laboratories for testing (they'll need your kernel
version and some scripts, I presume) and, if possible, fixing.
