Saturated Charcoal Canister

I have always heard that overfilling the fuel tank can saturate the vapor canister and cause problems.
What are some of the symptoms of
having a saturated vapor canister?

Gassy smell from near the corner of the truck where the canister is (depends upon year of S10.)

this can also occur from a malfunctioning, or disabled
purge to the engine as well.

Re: Saturated Charcoal Canister

Are there any other common
symptoms of a saturated charcoal
canister?
I have heard maybe running rich
and rough idle could be symptoms.
Can anyone confirm these or list more?
