XFS defragmentation issue

Hi, using ubuntu 9.04, kernel version 2.6.28-18 and xfsprog v2.10.2-1
I'm trying to defragment a drive. If I use xfs_db to check for
fragmentation it shows for example that a file has 20k+ fragments:
inode 578505506 actual 23240 ideal 1
mapping the inode to the file and running xfs_frs states that the file
is fully defragmented.
Also running xfs_frs says the drive is defragmented while xfs_db for
example reports 300k fragments.
Which is right? and is it possible to defragment the file assuming it is
fragmented so badly, if so how?
More information about the xfs
