missing space on ext2fs scsi drive

I've run into an odd problem that I'm not quite sure how to diagnose.

My root partition  (a 2Gb partition on an 8Gb drive) shows (with "df")
around 55% usage (2203440 1k-blocks, a little over half used) and yet
fails complaining that the disk is full.   I don't recall exactly how I
partitioned the disk (probably pdisk).

Is my ext2fs accounting screwed?  Why does the FS think there is no
space when writing, but show space with "df" ?
