The filesystem you're writing to doesn't have sufficient inodes
available to create all of the files from the tarball.  Effectively
you need an inode for each file you create. Inodes are created at the
time the filesystem is generated: the newfs(8) command has an option
to set the number of bytes-per-inode: generally the defaults are fine,
but the bytes-per-inode setting should be set to no more than the
expected average size of files on the partition, and preferably rather
less than that.  Running out of inodes before you run out of disk
space is embarrassing.  Worse, it requires backing up the whole
partition, rebuilding the filesystem and then recovering the data from
backup in order to fix.



to add the information about inode usage to the df output. As a rule
of thumb, the %iused value should always be less than the percentage
capacity used.

Well I believe that explains it. I guess with CVS files, mailing list archive, and webserver files, it became
an out of the ordinary partition.
Thanks for the heads up..
