I have a /var whihc is 400mb. It only has just over 100mb on it, but when
you try to add data (e.g. echo "foo" > /var/foo) I get back a "no space on
device" message.

I've tried reducing the reserved percentage. I've tried rebooting, so it's
not old filehandles (although it was happy briefly after a reboot).

Any ideas whats happened and how to fix it? It's very annoying, as my DNS,
DHCP, NFS servers all now refuse to respond...
