    To initial poster - try issuing a "sync" the next time it happens. It has worked for me in the past on 2.6.

    ----------

    Maintenance Commands sync(1M)

    NAME
    sync - update the super block

    SYNOPSIS
    sync

    DESCRIPTION
    sync executes the sync system primitive. If the system is to
    be stopped, sync must be called to insure file system
    integrity. It will flush all previously unwritten system
    buffers out to disk, thus assuring that all file modifica-
    tions up to that point will be saved. See sync(2) for
    details.

    Thanks Axr2,
    when it comes to a lesser size file, available free space is automatically updated. problem just occur when file with a bigger size involved.

    But thanks anyway.
