Strange behavior when moving Aperture masters to external drive...

I have a 20" iMac with Intel Core 2 Duo (about 6 years old). I am running Aperture 3 with "managed masters" (aka on the internal HDD). The internal HDD is only 250GB, and it was almost full... only 11GB free.

So, rather than buy a new iMac I decided to buy an external HDD (firewire) and move the masters over... "referenced masters."

Here is the strange part... all the masters have been moved now and the external HDD has 113GB of pics on it. So you would think my iMac now has 124GB (11+113) of free space now, right? WRONG! It only has 35GB free. WTF!!

How is it possible that I moved 113GB of data off the iMac, but only freed up 24GB of space?
