Paul, I've read the thread.  I know your problem is with /usr, but I 
find the fact that /var is full or too nearly so rather concerning, and 
wonder whether that might have contributed to your problem in some way, 
and whether freeing up some space there might yet help?

Also, does 'du /usr/lost+found' reveal anything?

cheers, Ian
