Hi, Ive got a big problem now on a production server.

When i do various things, i am getting "write failed, file system full"
messages all over the place. Ive gone through and deleted
things i can, and i should have the space now, but its just
not available:

$ df -m
Filesystem  1M-blocks Used Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/da0s1a      2015 1858    -3   100%    /
/dev/da0s1e     14061 9002  3933    70%    /usr/local
procfs              0    0     0   100%    /proc

I dont know what kind of math lets you do 2015-1858 and gives
you an answer of -3!

I have softupdates, or whatever, but i dont know how to get 
it to release this space. I cant reboot the running server.
I am planning on adding a disc to this system but right now
i need to get this space released ASAP! Can anyone help?
