Sync does appear to do something.  I can see disk activity the first
time I do it.  

On the other hand, I don't know if sync will be enough to keep the
overflow from happening.  In my case with rdist, I couldn't really
repeat the experiment with a sync/update running in the background.

Actually, I wasn't 100% sure it was softdeps.  I could have just run
out of space (although I didn't see how.)  The other posting convinced
me that I wasn't alone.
