Twice in as many days HDa0 (boot disk) has goon 100% full. Is this  

I checked the logs, and there are a bunch of log in attempts, so I  
assumed the first time, I was hacked, and they did something, what, I  
have no idea, but Myth likes a bit of room on HDa0.

So I upgraded to R5D1, and (dummy me) used the same usernames and  
passwords. I did that on Friday night, and today, 100% full on Disk  


du -ah | sort -rn | more

did not show a file bigger than a Meg (the drive partition is 4.4Gig).

I did some drastic measures to get Myth working to save some  
recordings.... (RM the source directories of the Kernel).

I am up, I will copy the files to my Mac, then try another 'upgrade'  
but use different passwords, (and for the time being removed the PAT  
statements from the Router).

Question.... is there some process that could cause HDa0 to go 100%  
full? (I checked mail and there was none).
