Yes.  The "30 Meg" figure comes from the Installed-Size field of the
.deb package and the Application installer blindly believes it.
Installed-Size is measured when building the package, which usually
happens on a 'normal' filesystem, such as ext3.  (I think.  Maybe it
is measured by looking at the tarball?)
