Thanks Steve.  I should've mentioned, though, I'm on a Windows server
and don't have the touch command available.

1) Check that you have not run out of inodes on the disk.

cd /path/to/cache
touch junk         # if this fails you have run out of inodes
rm junk

while df might report that there is still space on the disk, if you do
not have anymore inodes then you can not allocate that space for files
and your disk is full regardless of space.

2) A few years ago when I was using precache.php, there were problems
with it leaking file some kind of resource that was file related, may be
file handles. Anyway I could not figure it out and change my strategy to
tile a few rows, then exit and then ran it for each set of rows needed
until it was done. This allow the precache.php to run then exit before
it had problems and allow me to continue processing without having to
restart from the beginning. I think I probably had to change the script
to make it do that.

Hope this helps,
