When the script moves the data automatically to ext, apparently Froyo doesnt get that info, and it tries moving it too. In some cases, the size in Internal remains same, but in others, it increases. Why?
Honestly don't know the answer.
A2SD+ is a script which moves apps and dalvik cache to ext. Android doesn't see it as anything other than the phones internal memory. This is why froyo still allows it to be moved.
I believe a2SD+ moves the entire app and dalvik cache. Froyo just the app. Since you have already moved the dalvik cache, there should be only app cache on internal memory.
Perhaps a2sd leaves a minute part of the app behind?
Perhaps app cache is partly wiped.during the move?
Perhaps its a mistakes?
How much does the space increase? What happens on ext?
