On ia64 8.0-beta1 SMP mutt-devel-1.5.20_1 freezes on some folders with 

	/tmp: write failed, filesystem is full
	Could not copy message

top shows that mutt is in "wdrain" state and in /var/log/messages I see

   kernel: pid 43702 (mutt), uid 1001 inumber 23554 on /tmp: filesystem full

/tmp has lots of free space

Anybody else is seeing this?
What could be the problem?
