Hi all,

This is a zope issue that I think is probably zodb related. I've been 
seeing this behaviour for a couple of years now. When I inspect 
/proc/PID/fd (on a linux machine, this lists the open file descriptors 
held by the process with process id PID), I see many descriptors that 
point to open files, eg:

$ ls -go /proc/15431/fd | grep deleted
lrwx------ 1 64 2009-06-25 10:09 13 -> /var/tmp/tmptBEWCx.tbuf (deleted)
lrwx------ 1 64 2009-06-25 10:09 14 -> /var/tmp/tmpKSuzMN (deleted)
lrwx------ 1 64 2009-06-25 10:09 6 -> /var/tmp/tmp2HUAnn.tbuf (deleted)
lrwx------ 1 64 2009-06-25 10:09 7 -> /var/tmp/tmpex5QmJ (deleted)

This gets worse over time until we run out of diskspace, with a trace 
back like this (somewhat sanitised to protect the guilty):

".../parts/zope2/lib/python/transaction/_manager.py",line 110, in 
savepoint return self.get().savepoint(optimistic) File
".../parts/zope2/lib/python/transaction/_transaction.py", line 312, in 
savepoint self._saveAndRaiseCommitishError() # reraises!
".../parts/zope2/lib/python/transaction/_transaction.py", line 422, in 
_saveAndRaiseCommitishError t, v, tb = self._saveAndGetCommitishError() File
".../parts/zope2/lib/python/transaction/_transaction.py", line 309, in 
savepoint savepoint = Savepoint(self, optimistic, *self._resources) File
".../parts/zope2/lib/python/transaction/_transaction.py", line 737, in 
__init__ savepoint = savepoint()
".../parts/zope2/lib/python/ZODB/Connection.py", line 1046, in savepoint 
".../parts/zope2/lib/python/ZODB/Connection.py",line 555, in _commit 
self._store_objects(ObjectWriter(obj), transaction)
".../parts/zope2/lib/python/ZODB/Connection.py",line 583, in 
_store_objects s = self._storage.store(oid, serial, p, self._version, 
".../parts/zope2/lib/python/ZODB/Connection.py", line 1180, in store 
self._file.write(data) IOError: [Errno 28] No space left on device

Naturally a restart solves the problem immediately, but this is still a bug.

Before I dive into the code and attempt to find the problem, I thought 
I'd post first, partly to report the problem, but at the same time to 
find out if anyone has seen this and if perhaps a fix is already available.
