Also keep in mind that there will, by default, be a 5% block reservation for the super-user per blockdevice (in short: for every seperate partition on a hard disk in your system).

Processes holding files open is one reason why the newsyslog(8) command sends signals to syslogd or other logging programs to inform them they should close and re-open their log files after it has rotated them.
Softupdates can also effect filesystem freespace as the actual inode space recovery can be deferred; the sync(8) command can be used to encourage this to happen sooner.
