The rest seemed to be only my external hard drives, so I killed it when it
appeared to be doing nothing else. However, I can try to let it run longer.

Continuing, having now let du command run longer, here is what I get: 
# du -sch /*

Looks like something in /usr takes up most of the drive. So to continue our 
investigation: 
# du -sch /usr/*
644M    /usr/bin
836K    /usr/games
247M    /usr/include
5.3G    /usr/lib
144K    /usr/local
45M     /usr/sbin
6.1G    /usr/share
157M    /usr/src
13G     total
- where I find that /usr/lib and /usr/share take up the most. I don't think 
you really want to read the whole list for these folders. Thus here are the 
items that take up the most space. Most look pretty innocuous: 
1.6G    /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu
but in /usr/lib at the end I get 
5.3G     total
- but nothing else is more than a few kb or mb. The same thing happens when I 
look in /usr/share; the biggest item is: 
1.9G    /usr/share/doc
- and nothing else takes up more than a few kb or mb, yet at the end I get: 
6.1G     total
