Okay so, I reinstalled mythdora with a /var/ partition, and it doesn't seem 
to be having problems...

Thanks David!

One thing about MythDora (at least in v4.0 anyway) is that by default it
doesn't create a /var partition so it is possible that there is a log
somewhere that is filling up your drive.  You wouldn't think that this
would be a problem with a 120G drive, but it also uses part of the first
drive for storage (again by default).  You can change this during
installation.  They also have forums at: http://g-ding.tv/?q=forum which
may contain more specific help.

I doubt it has anything to do with LVM.  I have run LVM for years with
both ext3 and xfs and haven't had a problem with it.
