Subject: Can't recover space from deleted inode

Hi everyone,

I stumbled upon a bug on one of my systems where I can't seem to
recover space that should be free. This is non standard though:

1) Was downloading an ISO with wget,
2) By mistake on another terminal I deleted the temporary file,
3) wget kept downloading but couldn't move the temporary file, so it
exited with an error (I realized something had gone wrong),
4) I use 'df -h' and notice the size of the ISO file is missing. After
reboot and 'btrfs scrub', can't recover that free space.

Is this a bug and is there a tool that fixes this. I've read the wiki
and manuals and BTRFS doesn't have anything that checks correctness of
the filesystem?

Best regards,
Tiago Marques
