It's a feature, not a bug :)

In order to be able to make
check_disk /var/log
work even if /var/log physically resides in /var,
check_disk tries to be "clever" (and thus tries
to find the free diskspace in /dev if you ask it
for /dev/hda1)
(yes, I know it's a bug nevertheless :)

Workaround: Provide the -E parameter, e.g.
check_disk -E /dev/hda1
