The obvious a file in /, possibly a core dump.
The less obvious, an open but deleted file.
Even less obvious, a file in /tmp created in single user mode, without /tmp 

My money is on option 2:
fstat -f / |sort -rnk 8|head

will show you the largest open files on the root partition.


Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
