I have a guess here as to what the real problem is. can cause loncnew to start spewing into lonc_errors and fill
the harddrive.

do a df on /home

If it is full, stop loncapa the rough way

killall -9 loncnew
killall -9 lond

remove the lonc_errors file

rm /home/httpd/perl/logs/lonc_errors

check that you have space now

df /home

and restart the daemons (I will suggest using the oriinal lonc for now

/etc/init.d/loncontrol stop
/etc/init.d/loncontrol startold
