Any other syslog messages stand out? Googling around points to a 
possible reservation of space for root issue.

Other posts on the page reference 
'message_size_limit' so that might be worth checking. I'm guessing that 
it's probably not going to be your problem though.

I didn't think to ask earlier for the output from df -h. What does the 
space on other volumes (such as where /tmp is mounted) look like?
