New machine I have been slowly adding services to.  FreeBSD generic kernel.
Not in production yet, getting weird filesystem full errors.  
109% full infact :

dial# df -h
Filesystem     Size    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ad4s1a    248M     43M    185M    19%    /
devfs          1.0K    1.0K      0B   100%    /dev
/dev/ad4s1e    248M     12K    228M     0%    /tmp
/dev/ad4s1f    9.7G    8.1G    784M    91%    /usr
/dev/ad4s1d    248M    248M    -20M   109%    /var

But /var is not so full: 

dial# du -sch /var/*
2.0K    /var/account
6.0K    /var/at
 12K    /var/backups
4.0K    /var/crash
4.0K    /var/cron
 46M    /var/db
2.0K    /var/empty
2.0K    /var/games
2.0K    /var/heimdal
1.0M    /var/log
 12K    /var/mail
4.0K    /var/msgs
 40K    /var/named
2.0K    /var/preserve
 32K    /var/run
2.0K    /var/rwho
 58K    /var/spool
 68K    /var/tmp
 20K    /var/yp
 48M    total

Any ideas what would be causing this ? 
What I should check ?

If I try to vi a file I get a /var filesystem full error.  However if I cp a
file to /var it goes no problem.  What am I missing ?? :)
