I seem to recall the system reserving a certain amount of space to enable root to login in case of a filled system. Or was that only on a ext2 filesystem?

That's on ALL Unix and Linux systems that I've ever used.
Once disk usage goes beyond a threshold (set individually
in each filesystem layout on each partition at filesystem
creation time), only root can write to the filesystem.

Any filesystem (ext3, xfs, reiserfs, etc) which doesn't have
this capability cannot be a general purpose Unix or Linux
filesystem because it cannot be used on whatever filesystem(s)
(i.e partition) hold, for example, /tmp, /var/log, /var/tmp,
and wherever root's home directory happens to be.

Also, what are you trying to do? Make a small (asy 4k)

How about inodes? Are you out of those?
Do a 'df -i' to check.
