I hit it once a couple of months ago, but I was was busy with much
higher priority stuff at the time (sorting out a CVE-worthy bug fix)
so it slipped off my radar pretty rapidly after I recovered the test
system and kept doing what I needed to do...

So, yeah, the problems are still there, I just don't run my root
filesystems out of space very often. Like I said - maybe once or
twice a year is the typical frequency this happens.
