No one jumped on this yet?

Almost certainly (assuming baobab isn't buggy) there's a/some huge
file/files in your home dir itself, not a subdir.  Try:

ls -ailSrh /home/frank

If that doesn't show you some honkin' files, then try:

ls /home/frank |wc -l

and see if you get a silly number of smaller files (like thousands+).
Even then, they'd have to be pretty big files.
