Yes, that's my guess as well. This server had gc misconfigured, so it
hit ENOSPC a few weeks ago.

It is likely that the .lock files were left behind back then, and
since then the clients pushing to these refs were transferring their
whole history and still failing to update the ref, leading to rapid
repo growth.

So my situation is diagnosed and solved; I am still unhappy that it
took so much work and expertise; mainly because git isn't logging
anywhere. See my "Error logging for git over ssh?" message...
