Found the answer in that archives, sorry for the repost.  Turns out the
problem was out of control log files in the /var/logs/ directory.  So thats
a great feature, when one partion fills up, Myth is nice enough to fill up
your primary partion with error messages letting you know your other partion
is full.  wouldnt want anyone to feel left out.
