What do 'df' and 'df -i' on the client report? Your client could be
running disconnected and has reached the limit of it's local cache. So
either /coda is full, or the partition that is used to store the
container files. The used figure should only refer to files that are
`locked' into the cache by being open for writing or are pending
reintegration with the servers.
