I found something else, bdflush and update couldn't make any more room by
flushing and updating memory, so they placed the entry in the messages log
and refused transactions from occurring to the system. The block didn't
lockup my server, but I did need to reboot to get the system back in running

One of the todo options on my shopping list is more memory and hard drive,
so it doesn't surprise me that something like this happened.
