All responses stated pretty much the same thing:  Scratch
space is used to hold the original version of blocks that changed
while the fssnap was active, so its size is activity related
rather than being related to filesystem size or used space.
The file is "sparse" so don't get freaked out by the "ls -l"
output; use "du -k" to determine space used.
