I was going to suggest checking 'df', too.

Melissa's system once acted quite wonky (couldn't log in from XDM).
It ended up being that / was full because lpd or someone kept
complaining into /var/log/messages every 5 minutes.

Her tiny (at the time) hard disk filled up, and since so many things
expect to be able to dump things in /tmp, they all started dying strangely.

We killed the lpd and eventually stuck another 10GB drive in, and it's been
fine since. ;)
