We have to cope with the same problem here. It's a 662GB filesystem used
for Cyrus imapd mail folders. 55GB free space, plenty of free inodes, and
yet we get "filesystem full" messages. If we remove some mail folders
(postmaster double bounce stuff, thousands of mails per dir), the kernel
stops complaining about a full filesystem (until it runs out of $factor_x
We are now moving to a new machine, where we will split up the
large filesystem to smaller ones.
