RE: 200 GB drive has room but gzip indicates "No space left on device"

I updated Cygwin just now.  The problem still exists.  Attached please find
the output of:

    2006-05-29 16:44:48 Administrator@p42800e /backup/p42800e
    $ cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck-20060529-1644.out

It's interesting to note that gzip works fine on small files
(cygcheck-20060529-1644.out, 16 kB), but barfs on big ones
(p42800e-exchange-20060527-230000.bkf, 505,973 MB):
