I don't think that you can trust Use% for a jffs-partition since it
does garbage collection.

I suspect that jffs isn't always able to make free space available
for writing, especially if you have a lot of large files in the
file system. (But that's just a guess, I don't know the jffs
internals that well.) Anyway, you probably have too much on your
jffs-partition right now. Remove some more or make the partition

Keep the test-button (any of the two buttons between the COM1 and
COM2 serial ports) pressed while booting up, not the reset button.
