HDD seems to be full, but is not!


I have a HDD with 40GB free, but occasionally I get a message that the disk is full and that I cannot write to it. MLdonkey is running on this disk, and it pauses some downloads, because the disk is full, but it normally and successfully completes others. So this is very paradox!
the hdd has this entry in /etc/fstab:
/dev/hdc1 /mnt/data ext2 defaults,user 0 0

Anybody know what could cause this problem? MLdonkey? disk corruption?

Thanks for any help!
