 Reassigning to SoaS.
 This sounds like the usual "overlay corruption after running out of disk
 space" problem that's caused by using a DM/LVM snapshot for the overlay.

 FWIW the Debian counterparts use aufs for the overlay and don't suffer
 from this issue (kudos to alexanderpirdy for researching that).
