Linux du(1) de-duplication bug

I've found a confusing behaviour in Linux's version of du(1). du can take a single folder to recurse into, or list of files/folders either via --files0-from or in argv. But its behaviour is inconsistent if this list contains parents and children.

  1. A child given before its parent makes the parent count as empty
  2. With -s (or equivalently -d 0), a parent given before its child (vice versa) skips the child

OpenBSD's du conversely has consistent behaviour: it always outputs one line (or block of lines, if not given -s) per input, and always counts everything as full-sized, parent and child.
