We've just updated to htdig 3.13 from 3.1.1. We're on a FreeBSD 3-2Release

We updated since we began having this problem:

csc# htmerge -c /usr/local/etc/htdig.conf

/: write failed, file system is full
/usr/bin/sort: error closing file: No space left on device
htmerge: Word sort failed

I've added both in the .login & .profile files, as well as manually the
following statements:

set TMPDIR=/usr/tmp

and can see TMPDIR if I do a set.
Our db files are:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 7008256 Nov 30 08:25 db.docdb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 9631890 Nov 30 08:25 db.wordlist
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 0 Nov 30 08:52 db.wordlist.new
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 2048 Nov 30 08:52 db.words.db

We have over 700mb free.

Any ideas?
