    OS X lion need 5GB of free space and since it creates "recovery partition" itself when trying to install OS X lion so let it take some more space says it 6GB. I do not think Lion can use space more than that. Have you tried to install Lion in different drives? If yes, it could burn some space because each time it will create recovery partition. Try terminal commands to list the files and their size. May be this could help you to find out.
