Does it inform you of what device. What do you get when you type in
Code:
stat -f /
Also can you print how your filesystem is setup?

Hmmmm..... Well I am at a loss for words here. Everything looks fine. The only thing I can think of is some large temp file gets written to /usr and brings the avaliable space to 0. Does this happen at random intervals by chance? Maybe like a cron command that gets fired off?

can you what sysx.h is doing? When you this message pop up try doing a fdisk -l to see if you can see any drive with 0 available space.
