It might only be an error in memory and not on disk, based on previous cases
of this message.  It might relate to the ENOSPC problem causing some obscure
error path to try and clean up after failing to allocate data.

There were previous reports of this message, so this is another thing to
check in Bugzilla if the version of Lustre you are running has the fixes
for this problem or not.
