Have you used fstat to identify the big growing file which is taking up
the space, and which process has the file open?
A file which has been unlinked from all directories won't be seen by du,
but it does not free disk space until no process has it open.
USER CMD PID FD MOUNT INUM MODE SZ|DV R/W
root syslogd 47648 8 / 4317027 -rw-r--r-- 19776 w
root syslogd 47648 9 / 4317041 -rw------- 63 w
That might help to track it down.
