after installing (actually - creating a debian package for) 2.6.0-test11-bk2
I have this:

15k /usr/share/doc/kernel-image-2.6.0-test11-bk2

you don't use "du -cahL" when counting /lib/modules/2.6.0-test11-bk2, don you? /lib/modules/2.6.0-test11-bk2/build is a symbolic link to your kernel sources, "-L" in "du" counts them too. (man du)

evil@sheep:~$ du -cahL /lib/modules/2.6.0-test11/ | tail -n1
422M total
evil@sheep:~$ du -cah /lib/modules/2.6.0-test11/ | tail -n1
2.2M total
