Any advice on the following problem:
If I copy, either locally or with scp/sftp, multiple files so that the quota hardlimit is exceeded or partition is filled, the partition in question becomes completely unusable. The copy process hangs and can't be killed even from root account. If i copy just one file, there seems to be no problem, the copy process stops just fine as it's supposed to. But with multiple files the partition can't be accessed or used in any way, not even with root account. If I only try to cd to some directory in the partition in question, the shell hangs. As long as i don't access the hanged partition, system stays completely usable.
I'm running SUSE Linux 9.2
