I have a samba server (3.0.10) that was compiled and installed this

I'm seeing a strange problem that I haven't seen before with Samba.

No matter if I connect from my Linux laptop, or my WinXP desktop I
receive the error stating "Not Enough Free disk space" (From the windows
macine), and "cp: writing `public-share/gmp-4.1.4.tar.gz': No space left
on device" from the linux machine.

I have over 16Gb of space on the partition that the share resides.

[root samba-share]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1             726M  668M   58M  92% /
/dev/hda3             194M   19M  175M  10% /var
/dev/hda4              17G  318M   16G   2% /home
[root samba-share]# pwd


        workgroup = Workgroup
        server string = Samba Server
        os level = 33
        preferred master = Yes
        remote announce =
        hosts allow = 192.168.168., 127.

        comment = Home Directories
        valid users = %S
        read only = No
        browseable = No

        comment = Data
        path = /home/samba-share
        force user = mike
        force group = users
        read only = No
        guest ok = Yes

Has anyone seen this error before?
