Are you using Stock ROM?

How have you moved Apps, with native Android Apps2SD or with App from Market, App2SD?

Can you install Storage Analyser, free from is good showing where Apps actually are!!

If you are using Custom Rom, or Mount-point swap, it is important to know i.e. it is possible to mount External SD as Internal, and then Internal SD becomes External.....and that is where Apps get moved...

this is done in system file /etc/vold.fstab

but, not for the feint-hearted!!!!
