du -sS

Please have a look at this example (executed by a
regular user from the home directory)
$ du --separate-dirs --summarize
180     .
$ du --summarize                
1268    .

The first command seems to function as expected: it
shows  the summary of the current directory, size of
subdirectories is excluded. Now if I run (as a regular
$ du --separate-dirs --summarize /
du still does the recursive search on all
subdirectories outputting a huge amount of warnings.
Why does recursion take place here if I only want to
see the summary of "/" excluding size of
subdirectories? Am I missing something here?
