Sorry for top posting on this reply, but I was wondering if there was any
resolution to your problem below. We seem to be running into a similar problem.
A few hours before the error in this thread occurred the filesystem was filled
up to 100%, we had to clean things up to continue running.
Any additional information would be great.

oh, btw - running xfs_check doesn't work most of the time, as the log
usually contains entries, and isn't replayed before shutdown ..
I figure running this on every boot would leave me killing my log all of
the time, if the shutdown didn't leave time to write the changes to
