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.
