No File System Full message generated on RH ES4

Hello, I am fairly new to RH Linux but very experienced in unix. I am trying to generate a "file system full" message in the /var/log/messages file, when I fill up an ext3 file system. Once the file system fills up I am expecting a message like "File System /xxx/yyy full" or out of space, but I do not get this or any message. I have modified the lvm.conf to send to syslog and set the messages to as verbose as I can. I get lvm messages in the file but nothing when the file system is full. Can someone tell me what has to be done to get the file system full message and in my syslog. I have tried filling as root and non root still no message.

How are you checking that the volume is indeed full?

I created a test file system about 1gb and created a file until I get a message on the terminal that tells me "cat: write error: No space left on device". I see that message but I have tried to get that message into syslog and have not been able to. I modified the syslog.conf to have *.* and kern.* go to /var/log/messages. The *.* should cover all but I still do not get that message in a log file that I can watch for with my syslog manager.
