Hmm, I wouldn't expect short placeholders ever.  It would either be a
hard link or nothing, IIRC.  And a hard link would look strikingly
like a real file at first glance, except I wouldn't expect df or du to
show any extra used space.  It should be obvious when a 9 GB file is
being copied on import, I assume it actually takes a while?
